Donald Margulies, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Dinner with Friends, and MTC's hit production of Sight Unseen, returns with a world premiere production. Brooklyn Boy is about a writer who has finally hit the big time after years of hard work with a best-selling novel primed for a Hollywood adaptation. But has success changed him? And does where we're from affect who we become? Adam Arkin stars in this production, directed by Daniel Sullivan.
