About The Show

Evening at the Talk House

Remember when we felt we could do anything, when there was still nothing to fear? Yes, things have changed a bit, haven’t they? In Wallace Shawn’s Evening at the Talk House, everyone’s invited to join the company of Robert (Matthew Broderick)’s under-appreciated masterpiece, Midnight in a Clearing with Moon and Stars, at a get-together to raise a toast on the 10th anniversary of its opening night. To recall that wonderful creative atmosphere, which we all miss so much, Nellie (Jill Eikenberry) will host this celebration at the old haunt, the Talk House (which, despite everything, remains open). Please come. We need each other.

Reunion Readings, part of The New Group Off Stage slate of projects, are digital broadcasts of play readings featuring the original casts from plays produced in The New Group’s first 25 years.
