Greenwich resident stars in Off Broadway revival

Greenwich resident Chris Holliday is set to take the stage as stare of the Off-Broadway revival of Bekah Brunstetter’s Be a Good Little Widow at The Wild Project in New York City.

The play, which is described as a surprising dark comedy that explores love, loss and everything that comes after opens today, Sept. 12, and will run through Sept. 22. The Wild Project is located at 195 East 3rd Street between Avenue A and Avenue B in New York City. Performances are Thursdays to Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased online at or by calling 1-800-838-3006. The production is for mature audiences 16 and up. The play’s running time is approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.

Melody is an adult, or at least she thinks she is. She has a house in the burbs, a successful lawyer husband Craig with a cute assistant Brad, even a disapproving mother-in-law, Hope, to contend with. But between midday yoga, interior decorating, and dinner parties Melody feels something just isn’t right. When the unthinkable happens Melody is thrust into a world of black dresses and funeral plans, but can Hope really teach her what it means to Be a Good Little Widow?

Mr. Holliday a LAByrinth Intensive Ensemble member helps lead the cast in this ensemble.

The New York Times called the play “Delicately satisfying… Bekah Brunstetter writes fresh, unfussy dialogue and characters who earn their laughs and emotional moments by honest means.”

TimeOut NY found it to be “tender and oddly charming,” while New York Magazine described it as “a funny, salty, achy drama.” Back Stage made Widow a Critic’s Pick, calling it a “powerful new play…Brunstetter’s words pierce the soul, and she makes the depths of the human experience profoundly relatable.”

The Wild Project is accessible from the F train to 2nd Avenue.
