Conor McPherson's ghost story Shining City got good reviews in the New York Times two years ago (it featured Oliver Platt and Martha Plimpton); Ben Brantley called it "quiet, haunting and absolutely glorious." It's an emotional story involving a therapist, his first-ever patient, and the apparition of the patient's dead wife. All, apparently, are lonely and displaced. Shining City sound like a perfect choice for director Amy Glazer -- she like Chekhov a lot, too. This production features Paul Whitworth, Alex Moggridge, Beth Wilmurt, and Alex Conde.
