Written and originally performed by Mindy Kaling (of “The Office” and “The Mindy Project” fame) and Brenda Withers, Matt & Ben is a fictional, hilarious take on the inception of the movie that launched Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s career over 20 years ago: “Good Will Hunting”. Matt and Ben, both played by women, are accosted by the script which falls from the sky into their apartment and refuses to be ignored. The arrival of this magical gift (or curse) invites the beginning of their careers… but maybe too, the end of their long friendship. The play featuring favorite 90s throwbacks and stars Allison Megroet and Allyson Miko. Directed by Mat Pecek.
