Alfred Molina and Dorothy Lyman star in latest live production of We Have to Hurry
Love gets a second chance (again) in a second benefit live production from We must hurry, this time with Tony-nominated Alfred Molina and playwright Dorothy Lyman. The work, which debuted in May with Elliott Gould and Kathleen Chalfant, airs June 5 at 8 p.m. ET and June 6 at 3 p.m. via Broadway on Demand.
Patricia Vanstone returns to direct the play, which follows a pair of mature people forced to commune across a balcony due to new isolation protocols. When Gil notices the secret love of his life, Margaret, increasingly frustrated with the situation, he takes action to make every remaining moment count.
