A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City

September 5 - October 08, 2017
Gil Cates Theater

Written by Halley Feiffer
Directed by Trip Cullman
Featuring Halley Feiffer, Jason Butler Harner, Eileen T'Kaye & JoBeth Williams

"Halley Feiffer’s daring romantic comedy under the sparkling direction of Trip Cullman... is as defiantly unconventional as its title, but it is also satisfying in traditional ways."  – Los Angeles Times
"Imagine Neil Simon’s situational craftsmanship crossed with an indie sensibility that’s not so much feminist as female-centered."  – Los Angeles Times

"Halley Feiffer takes on the role herself at the Geffen, expertly navigating her way around Karla’s sharp edges."  – Los Angeles Times
"Jason Butler Harner grows more effective — and affecting — as his character reveals his bruises and scars."  – Los Angeles Times

"Outrageously funny! An off-the-wall comedic treat... directed with crowd-pleasing pizzazz."  – TheaterMania
"Funny and moving! An audacious mix of crude humor and deep feeling."  – TheaterMania
"Under Trip Cullman's perceptive direction, Halley Feiffer's distinct voice is on fine display throughout, in all its uniquely unsettling glory."  – TheaterMania 
"Painfully irresistible! Makes a convincing case that hard laughter is an absolutely appropriate response to those moments when life seems like too bad a joke not to respond otherwise."  – The New York Times 

Accomplished playwright and actor Halley Feiffer brings her sardonic, hilarious and tender play about connection in a time of loss to the Geffen Playhouse with the West Coast Premeire of A Funny Thing Happened.... This New York Times Critics' Pick tells the story of a struggling young stand-up comic (Feiffer) and a wealthy middle-aged divorcée (Jason Butler Harner) cooped up in a Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital room shared by their cancer-stricken mothers (Eileeen T'Kaye and JoBeth Williams). Forced to confront their relationships with their respective mothers, Karla and Don cope with their new reality by making some of the world's most innappropriate jokes. Feiffer's unique and insightful comedy demonstrates how shared experiences create unexpected kinship, and how comedy and tragedy often operate in unsettling tandem.

Written & Directed by Josh Ravetch
Lyrics by Alan & Marilyn Bergman
Music by Bill Cantos & Mari Falcone, Dave Grusin, Marvin Hamlisch, Michel Legrand and Johnny Mandel
Featuring Tyne Daly, Robert Forster & Scott Kradolfer

“If there were a Tony Award for a yet-to-be-produced play, Chasing Mem’ries with Robert Forster and Tyne Daly would get my vote! In the workshop production, Tyne would even earn my Tony of the decade award. This is a touching, luscious, triumphant piece of theatre.” – Norman Lear

In this world premiere with songs written by legendary lyricists Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Tyne Daly stars as a woman not quite ready to let go of the life she’s loved and the love of her life.
