Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker

Husband and wife team Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker, stars of the long-running hit TV series L.A. Law, join us to share some exciting new developments in their lives. Actor-turned-playwright Michael Tucker has a new Off Broadway play, Fern Hill, which explores how three married couples in their later years cope with aging, declining health, their sexuality, and marital infidelity, among other challenging subjects. Much of the play revolves around a discussion by the characters of whether they should all move into a farmhouse of the same name, owned by one of the couples, so they can live and work together and help each other as they age. Jill is probably best known for her five Emmy nominations and four Golden Globe nominations playing Ann Kelsey on L.A. Law. She is a long-time member of the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County’s Artistic Advisory Council. Jill returned to the cabaret stage last March to sing about love in her show entitled Here I Go Again!  which was held at Feinstein’s 54 Below in New York City.
