Interesting casting. Not sure what Karam calls for in his script in terms of cultural or ethnic background, but the family's Catholicism is a major point, no? As I remember from the original production.

Interesting that they are keeping Houdyshell when I can imagine a lot of A-list actresses being rather good in it. I guess having Schumer may have made it easier for him to demand Houdyshell reprise her Tony-winning performance.

I will miss Reed Birney but Richard Jenkins is a good replacement. Having loved Melissa McCarthy in Can You Ever Forgive Me?, I look forward to seeing what Amy Schumer has up her sleeve in a pretty serious role.And Beanie Feldstein is off-beat casting for the younger daughter.
