Orphan’s tells the story of two young abandoned brothers living together in a Philadelphia apartment towards the end of the last century. The true nature of their existence is revealed in harrowing, funny, and poignant ways when Harold, a mysteriously wealthy businessman enters their lives.
ORPHANS first premiered in 1983 with Joe Pantoliano (Soprano’s) and Lane Smith (My Cousin Vinny) in originating roles. It was nominated for a Tony last year for “Best Revival of a Play” that starred Alec Baldwin and Ben Foster (3 10 to Yuma). It has also been adapted to the screen and starred Albert Finney, Matthew Modine and Kevin Anderson.
