HARTFORD, Conn. — Four-time Academy Award-Nominee Marsha Mason is set to appear in and co-direct “Lost in Yonkers” at the Hartford Stage.
The play centers around the lives of two young brothers who are sent to live with their stern Grandmother Kurnitz, a Jewish immigrant from Germany.
Mason will be playing the role of Grandmother Kurnitz.
“She is a victim of early difficulties in Germany and she brought her family to the United States,” Mason said. “It’s kind of a very present time in terms of what we’re dealing with as far as immigration issues across the country and the world. It’s funny, serious and touching, and I think it speaks to our audiences today.”
Mason said she hopes audiences have a greater understanding about the importance of family, support, disappointment and the struggles we often live through.
Previews of Lost in Yonkers run April 7-13, and opening night is April 14.
The production is set to run through May 1, click here to purchase tickets.
