October 15, 2004: The most dangerous smile on Broadway fills the opening minutes of the revival of Craig Lucas's "Reckless," which opened last night at the Biltmore Theater. The smile is worn by Mary-Louise Parker, playing an improbably ecstatic housewife on Christmas Eve, and it's one of those all-embracing, absurdly sincere grins that can wrap an entire theater in a blanket of giddiness.READ THE REVIEW

Manhattan Theatre Club and Second Stage Theatre will partner to present the Broadway premiere of Reckless, by Craig Lucas, starring Mary-Louise Parker. Mark Brokaw directs.
The play stars Mary-Louise Parker as Rachel. It’s Christmas Eve, her son has "fired" her, her husband’s put out a contract on her life, and so she’s out the window – literally. This bittersweet comedy follows Rachel through a bizarre, fantastic and sometimes nightmarish journey as she travels across the country, finding "home" with a succession of intimate strangers.
