John Lithgow to direct Douglas McGrath in a new solo show, it’s all good

Tony Award winner John Lithgow to conduct Douglas McGrath in world premiere of his autobiographical solo play Everything is finewhich is set to begin previews at the DR2 Theater on September 20 before an official opening night on October 13.

McGrath wrote the book for Magnificent: Carole King’s Musical as well as the scenario Bullets on Broadway. This solo performance marks his first appearance on a New York stage in over 25 years.

According to news reports, “Everything is fine chronicles the life of 14-year-old McGrath in Midland, Texas – the city most famous for the disappearance underground and the recovery on the surface of “Baby Jessica”. McGrath shares memories of the courtship of his one-eyed father and mother, who worked at Harper’s Bazaar for Diana Vreeland and became pals with Andy Warhol, and most intriguingly, an eighth grade teacher who would change his life from the most unexpected way.”

Lithgow, who last appeared on Broadway as Bill in Hillary and Clinton, will lead a creative team that includes set designer John Lee Beatty, costume designer Linda Cho, lighting designer Caitlin Smith Rapoport and sound designer Emma Wilk. The production manager is Amy Rauchwerger.
