Allison Janney, Corey Hawkins & John Benjamin Hickey Get Star-Studded Support At 'Six Degrees of Separation' Opening!

Corey Hawkins, Allison Janney and John Benjamin Hickey got a whole bunch of support at the opening night of their play, Six Degrees of Separation!

Oh, Hello co-stars Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, former Friends co-stars David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry, Andy Cohen, Teyonah Parris, Victor Garber and Samuel L. Jackson all stepped out to show their support for the Broadway revival held at the Barrymore Theatre on Tuesday evening (April 25) in New York City.

Inspired by a true story, the play, according to press the press release, “follows the trail of a young con man, Paul (Hawkins), who insinuates himself into the lives of a wealthy New York couple, Ouisa and Flan Kittredge (Janney and Hickey), saying he knows their son at college. Claiming he’s the son of actor Sidney Poitier, Paul tells them he has just been mugged and all his money is gone. Captivated by Paul’s intelligence (and the possibility of appearing in his father’s new movie), the Kittredges invite him to stay overnight. After finding him in bed with a hustler (Cusati-Moyer), their picture of Paul changes, and Ouisa and Flan turn detective trying to piece together the connections that gave him access to their lives. Meanwhile, Paul’s cons unexpectedly lead him into darker territory as his lies begin to catch up with him.”
