The world premiere of The Moscows of Nantucket runs through June 12th at Theater J.

Sibling rivalry stretches all the way back to biblical times, and Theater J is giving the theme a contemporary, comedic twist with its world-premiere play, "The Moscows of Nantucket". Rebecca Sheir visits a rehearsal of the show, and talks with the actors who portray two very different brothers: A down-on-his-luck fiction writer, and an outrageously successful TV producer.
