Seat Filler: NYC Theater Guide for June 2012

Our man on the New York theater scene makes Jim Parsons his imaginary friend, shacks up with former soap star Jake Silbermann, gets a cross-dressing crash course on Harry Potter, and much more.



The Common PursuitThe Common Pursuit
Even when cerebral chatter gives way to soapy drama, out director Moisés Kaufman can’t sharpen Roundabout’s dull revival of Simon Gray’s predictable 1984 play about two decades of lost potential. Among the Cambridge undergrads who become frenemies while launching an elitist literary zine, Tim McGeever is a standout as the droll and erudite Humphry, a self-destructive gay man who frequents dangerous cruising spots.
Laura Pels Theatre, through July 29.
