Acclamed Actor Tim Daly of Private Practice will star; Geoffrey Arend, Mary Bacon and Carolyn Holding complete the outstanding cast.
The best of Broadway is once again presented by DTF with this hit play written by Theresa Rebeck, one of Broadway’s top playwrights. The Scene is a provocative comedy about the pitfalls and shallowness of the entertainment industry, an industry where who you know and what party you attend is most important.
"Ms. Rebeck’s dark-hued morality tale contains enough fresh insights into the cultural landscape to freshen what is essentially a classic boy-meets-bad-girl story." -New York Times
“Rebeck’s wickedly scathing observations about the sort of self-obsessed New Yorkers who pursue their interests at the cost of their morality and loyalty”- New York Post
