"Proof" Opens New Season at McCarter Theatre
"Proof" is a father/daughter drama, a love story, and a mystery. Who wrote the groundbreaking mathematical proof discovered after an eccentric professor's death? Winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, "Proof" opens the 2013/14 season at the McCarter Theatre in a new production directed by Emily Mann. Mann describes her fascination with the play, and reveals some hidden connections - for instance, she herself is the daughter of a professor at the University of Chicago, the same campus where "Proof" takes place. "Proof" opens in previews on September 6 and runs through October 6.
