About The American Plan - On Broadway

Show Info


A tentative courtship unfolds at a Catskills summer resort in the 1960's. This exciting new look at an acclaimed play is from the Tony Award winning author of Take Me Out.

A mother threatened by happiness...
A daughter desperate for it...
And the summer that will haunt them forever.

It is the Catskill Mountains in the early 1960s, and Lili Adler (Lily Rabe) and her mother Eva (Mercedes Ruehl) are spending the summer across the lake from a bustling hotel where comics entertain and buffets overflow. When a handsome young stranger (Kieran Campion) enters their world, the emotionally fragile Lili finds herself falling in love. But once her imperious mother learns of their relationship, lies are exposed, alliances are forged and Lili's one chance to escape her mother's control may be lost forever.

Playwright Richard Greenberg continues his long association with MTC where his other New York premieres have included The Violet Hour, Three Days of Rain and Eastern Standard. The cast, directed by Tony nominee David Grindley (Journey's End), features Kieran Campion (Journey's End), Austin Lysy (Macbeth), Brenda Pressley (Dreamgirls), Lily Rabe (Heartbreak House) and Oscar® and Tony winner Mercedes Ruehl (The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?, Lost in Yonkers).
