Broadway moves to the suburbs to "keep up with the Joneses"

Did you hear that Broadway is moving to the suburbs?  It has to or it won't keep up with the Joneses. The Realistic Joneses, that is.  Ok, we are kidding about the move.  It's still in Manhattan!

After a critically acclaimed run at the Yale Repertory Theatre, The Realistic Joneses comes to New York with an All-Star cast featuring Toni Collette, Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts and Marisa Tomei.  The play is based on what many think is "suburban hell", which is often defined as being jealous of what your neighbors have and competing like crazy to be socially superior.

The two couples, both names Jones, fantasize and project about everything, but in the end, the play gets the audience thinking whether it's really better to be in someone else's shoes.  And, of course, a production about suburbia would not be complete without that obligatory awkward grocery store scene that includes inappropriate touching!

The Realistic Joneses is a great show for many reasons and one of them might be the short, intermission-free run-time of only 90 minutes. 

Meeting planners: you can schedule dinner for your attendees after the show.  How often does that happen?

Shackman Associates New York provides corporate meeting, association convention, and destination incentive groups with unique Broadway experiences than regularly include backstage tours and interaction with key performers.
