If either high school English or celeb stalking is your thing, we’ve got you covered! Of Mice and Men just began previews on Broadway and it stars none other than Leighton Meester (of Gossip Girl fame) and James Franco (of basically every movie you love fame).
The two and a half hour long drama, based on John Steinbeck’s novella, tells the story of George and Lennie, two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression. Both want a better life, but Lennie always seems to be causing problems that interfere with their happiness and grand plan. George, a smart and driven young man “must choose between protecting his friend and staying the course towards his version of the American Dream”, according to NYC.com.
Of Mice and Men is a limited engagement as it’s only on Broadway for 18 weeks. It officially opens April 16th and once it does tickets will surely be hard to come by. Pro tip? Whether you buy a ticket to the show or not, you may get a glimpse (and a picture or two) of the stars if you hang out by the stage door post-performance.
