Open: 12/12/14- Close: 12/20/14 MATT & BEN
Before she appeared on NBC's The Office and starred in her own sitcom, Mindy Kaling co-wrote the play Matt & Ben. A parody she penned with friend Brenda Withers, Matt & Benreimagines the story behind Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's rise from Beantown nobodies to Hollywood golden boys thanks to Good Will Hunting. In real life, the men wrote that hit film themselves, but in this version of the story, the script drops mysteriously from the heavens and the pair comes to realize that they're actually being tested by a higher power.
