The dazzling David Lindsay-Abaire, whose previous plays (Fuddy Meers, Kimberly Akimbo) were outrageous comedies, returns with a heartfelt drama. A happily married couple, played by the elegant Cynthia Nixon and John Slattery, are forced to face the future after a life-shattering accident. Tyne Daly and John Gallagher Jr. round out the cast. The excellent Daniel Sullivan (Sight Unseen) directs.
