Ahmanson rolls a ‘Seven’ preem

Theatergoers relate to 1938 Midwest-set play

The Center Theater Group got into the holiday spirit with Paul Osborn’s play “Morning’s at Seven” Dec. 11 at the Ahmanson. “A Christmas present to people of all ages,” was the way cast member William Biff McGuire described it at the opening night Impressario after-party.

The 1938 Midwest-set play appeals to people of all backgrounds, McGuire said. “My sister came to New York (to see it), and she said it’s like being in the back yard at home,” the New Haven, Conn., native observed.

Cast member Elizabeth Franz said young people came up to her during the play’s Gotham turn and told her, “You should see my mother and sisters and the squabbling that goes on.”

On Dec. 11, however, there was a lot of partying with fellow cast members Mary Louise Wilson, Frances Sternhagen, Paul Dooley, Stephen Tobolowsky, Julie Haggerty, Piper Laurie and Buck Henry; CTG’s Gordon Davidson; and guests Ed Begley Jr., Bill Brochtrup, Doris Roberts, Sharon Lawrence and Dick Van Patten.
