MCC Theater has announced that All the Ways to Say I Love You, Neil LaBute’s new solo play starring two-time Tony winner Judith Light, will be filmed live for the New York Public Library’s Theatre on Film and Tape Archive (TOFT) at Lincoln Center. The filming will occur October 20, and the twice-extended Off-Broadway production will wrap up October 23.
With direction by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman, All The Ways to Say I Love You began performances September 6 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre and officially opened September 28. In the new monologue play, Light plays a high school English teacher and guidance counselor in a long-time, loving marriage, who finds herself looking back at pivotal choices and moments in her life.

The show marks LaBute’s 10th play produced by MCC in a 15-year collaboration that includes Fat Pig, The Mercy Seat, The Distance from Here, and reasons to be pretty, which transferred to Broadway and received a Tony nomination for Best Play. Light returns to the Lortel following her performances in Margaret Edson’s Wit and Laura Wade’s Colder Than Here; and Leigh Silverman's work was last seen at MCC with Coraline.
