MATT & BEN
by Mindy Kaling & Brenda Withers
September 7 – October 1
Winner of the 2002 FringeNYC Award
From the mind of multi-award winning writer and actress Mindy Kaling, Matt & Ben depicts its Hollywood golden boys – before J-Lo, before Gwyneth, before Project Greenlight, before Oscar… before anyone actually gave a damn. When the screenplay for Good Will Hunting drops mysteriously from the heavens, the boys realize they’re being tested by a Higher Power. Originally performed by Mindy Kaling and Brenda Withers in the title roles, Matt & Ben is a hilarious satire on the real and imagined difficulties of pursuing a dream.
“Absolutely delightful and deliciously spiteful! Sharp and clever, Matt & Ben succeeds!” – The New York Times
“A hit! Acidic, funny and affectionate! Matt & Ben spoofs Hollywood’s best friendship!” – The New York Post
