Actor Patrick Carroll ’00 will make his Broadway debut next month in Good People, a new play by Pultizer winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole). The production, which begins previews on February 8 and opens on March 3, stars Oscar winners Frances McDormand (Fargo) and Estelle Parsons (Bonnie & Clyde) and television and film star Tate Donovan. Directed by Tony winner Daniel Sullivan, Good People has a limited engagement (through April 24) at the Manhattan Theatre Club’s Friedman Theatre.
The Good People website provides this synopsis:
“Welcome to Southie, a Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo… where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills… and where Margie Walsh has just been let go from yet another job. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start. But is this apparently self-made man secure enough to face his humble beginnings? Margie is about to risk what little she has left to find out. With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.”
Patrick (“Pat”) Carroll studied acting at the Rutgers University conservatory. His film, stage and television credits include: a starring role in Brian DePalma’s Redacted; stage roles in Troilus and Cressida and A Streetcar Named Desire; and guest appearances on Law & Order, Six Degrees and Eleventh Hour.
