Weeds Vs. The Snow Geese, Or Why Mary-Louise Parker Fans Will Love Her New Broadway Play
December 3rd, 2013

Tony winner Mary Louise Parker won a Golden Globe and a legion of fans for her incredible portrayal of Nancy Botwin, a pot-dealing widow, on the hit Showtime series Weeds. But after eight seasons on television, Parker snuffed out her joint and returned to Broadway in the new Sharr White play The Snow Geese. While these two projects are seemingly worlds apart (a contemporary comedy about drugs and a World War I drama set in a hunting lodge), we’re here to argue that Weeds fans will love this play, because it’s actually very similar to the TV show they already adore.
