Reuniting for the first time since its celebrated, award-winning premiere at The Vineyard in 1997 will be the original company of Paula Vogel’s HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE — Mary-Louise Parker as “L’il Bit,” David Morse as “Uncle Peck,” Johanna Day, Kerry O’Malley and Justin Hagan. Directed by Mark Brokaw, The Vineyard production of HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE transferred to a successful commercial run Off-Broadway, winning the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, OBIE, Drama Desk, Outer Critics, Lucille Lortel, and NY Drama Critics Awards for Best Play. The New York Times called DRIVE “a heartbreaking and wonderful new play . . . that startles at every turn. The play is angry and compassionate, light-handed and devastating.” The Village Voice raved that it was “stunning…an extraordinary play. One of the most gripping stories told on the stage in years.”
This special celebration of the Vineyard’s 30th Anniversary Season takes place on Monday, July 1 at 8pm at Vineyard Theatre (108 East 15 St., between Irving Place and Union Square East).
