Six Degrees of Separation

Award winning drama Six Degrees of Separation has been revived on Broadway this year.  Now, close to Shimmie Horn’s Washington Jefferson Hotel, guests can take a stroll along the Theater District and enjoy leading roles played by Allison Janney and John Benjamin Hickey. The production is based on David Hampton’s true story, a con man who turns up at a Manhattan couple’s door pretending to be Sidney Poitier’s son, bleeding from a knife wound.  What transpires is fascinating to watch, how this con man ignites a kind of spiritual awakening in the couple.

Allison Janney has won seven Emmy’s and has been nominated twice for a Tony award.  She is most well known for her acting in The West Wing in the character of C. J. Cregg.

The show opened in New York’s Theater District on April 25 and will play until July 16.
