Talk: Off-Broadway's The Whirligig

Cast members Zosia Mamet, Norbert Leo Butz, and Dolly Wells, along with director Scott Elliott and writer Hamish Linklater join us for a Q&A discussion about their Off-Broadway show. About the show: When, after much time away, Kristina is back in Berkshire County, word spreads fast that she and her ex-husband are caring for their estranged, ailing daughter Julie. Broken-hearted and giddy with love and confusion, surprising visitors from Julie's complicated past practically trip over each other to reach the young woman they thought they'd lost years before. Hamish Linklater’s The Whirligig spins a tale of a fractured community weaving a circuitous route back to one another. ​
