The Mike Bencivenga play charts the birth of film noir from the minds of Hollywood collaborators Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler. “Film noir is dark. I’m known for film blanc more,” Marshall jokes about taking a stab at a heavier genre. Nonetheless, he’s “so excited” to present the story about the actor-director odd-couple, which hits close to home for him: “The hardest person I ever fought with most is my sister Penny on Laverne and Shirley!” Billy & Ray, now in previews, opens officially on October 20 at the Vineyard Theatre.last_img
