Hamish Linklater, Scott Elliott



Hamish Linklater’s The Whirligig cast, a production by The New Group, met the press for a photo shoot recently at New 42nd Street Studios.  Directed by Scott Elliott, the cast includes Noah Bean, Norbert Leo But, Jon DeVries, Alex Hurt, Zosia Mamet, Jonny Orsini, Grace Van Patten and Dolly Wells.  The limited off-Broadway engagement plays from May 4 thru June 11 at The Pershing Square Signature Center (Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre) 480 West 42nd Street.  Opening night is set for May 21.


The Whirligig spins a heartfelt and compassionate tale of a fractured community weaving a circuitous route back to one another.  When, after much time away, Kristina is back in Berkshire County, word spreads fast that she and her ex-husband Michael are caring for their estranged, ailing daughter Julie. Broken-hearted and giddy with love and fusion, surprising visitors from Julie’s complicated past practically trip over each other to reach the young woman they thought they’d lost years before, still feeling deeply connected.
