Through the microcosm of a rural Connecticut mental health center, Tony Award-winning playwright David Rabe conjures an entire American community on the edge. Like their patients, Dr. Michaels, his colleague Evangeline, and the clinic itself teeter between breakdown and survival, wielding dedication and humanity against the cunning, inventive adversary of mental illness. They hold on to the need to fight – and to live. Inspired by a real clinic, Rabe finds humor and compassion in a raft of richly drawn characters adrift in a society and a system stretched beyond capacity. This New York premiere of Good for Otto features F. Murray Abraham as Barnard, Ed Harris as Dr. Michaels, Amy Madigan as Evangeline, Rileigh McDonald as Frannie, Rosie O'Donnell as Nora, and Michael Rabe as Jimmy. Scott Elliott directs.
