December 30, 2009 – February 7, 2010

A Pulitzer Prize finalist and smash hit that premiered Off-Broadway earlier this year, Becky Shaw is the latest comedy from Obie Award-winner Gina Gionfriddo (After Ashley, writer/producer of “Law & Order”). When Suzanna decides to set her best friend Max up on a blind date with her husband’s mysterious co-worker, Becky Shaw, she sets into motion a series of cataclysmic events forever changing all of their lives. Mixing sharp wit and humor with the taut suspense of a psychological thriller, Becky Shaw is a comedy of romantic errors that keeps audiences at the edge of their seats guessing what will happen next.


“How refreshing to hear a play — for that’s what we’re really doing, however stunning the visuals — that purrs, perks and pops like Gina Gionfriddo’s Becky Shaw.”
“If you are looking for a smart new play that’s performed, directed and designed magnificently, head to The Wilma Theater’s deliriously funny production of Gina Gionfriddo’s Pulitzer-nominated Becky Shaw.”
“Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match. Only make it the phosphorus kind. That’s what playwright Gina Gionfriddo does in her highly flammable comedy of no-manners called Becky Shaw, which played to acclaim Off-Broadway last year and opened Wednesday in a sizzling production at the Wilma Theater.”
“As engrossing as it is ferociously funny, like a big box of fireworks fizzing and crackling across the stage from its first moments to its last!”
