Earlier in the day, Mary-Louise Parker appeared on The Today Show, where she revealed that she initially felt that the role in the piece did not suit her.

Parker said that what sold her in the piece was writing and said: & I just loved the writer Adam Rapp. He is so gifted and his prose is so beautiful. I found writing so fascinating. & # 39;

& # 39; I am not always the best evaluator of what people will like, but I just found it very interesting & # 39 ;, she went on. & # 39; I didn't think people would find it just as moving. & # 39;

The Tony winner said she didn't think she was the best actress for the role at first.

She says she met Mandy Greenfield, the artistic director of the Williamstown Theater Festival, who begged her to read the piece.

Parker rejected the role and even recommended producers such as Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon to the producers, but Greenfield & # 39; really only believed in this part & # 39 ;, she said, and when she read the piece, she was sold .
