Good People

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire and actors Estelle Parsons and Tate Donovan discuss "Good People," which is now up at the Manhattan Theatre Club. "Good People" is set in Southie, a working-class Boston neighborhood where Margie Walsh has just been let go from another job and is looking to catch a break with her old fling.

Bernie you sound like an an angry and sorry soul. To answer you question, people move for all sorts of reasons. Your comment about Mas*holes ‘staying there’ is provincial and divisive. I have met many wonderful people during my years living in NYC. You sir, however, are not one of them.

She sounds drunk. Anyway, being from Walpole, MA I love hearing about the local variations in accents.

Steve -- I'm also from Worcester and was thinking of posting the same question as you.

Always nice to hear from Ms. Parsons!

As someone from a shanty Irish background I would be flattered to be called lace-curtain.

Could you comment on popular portrays of the Boston accent? I'm from Worcester and the only thing more frustrating than listening to a terrible Boston accent is a studied but accent that doesn't quite hit it. The problem I hear most commonly is people properly enunciating ev-er-y syllable too ca'e-ful-ly. Yes, you need to slur!
