Altman's Sin Plays Baruch Performing Arts Center Starting March 9

News   Altman's Sin Plays Baruch Performing Arts Center Starting March 9 Sin, a new comedy based on Isaac Bashevis Singer's short story "The Unseen," which has been adapted by Mark Altman, begins previews March 9 at the Baruch Performing Arts Center's Rose Nagelberg Theatre in Manhattan.

Directed by Kent Paul, the production will officially open March 17. The cast comprises Marilyn Chris, Paul Collins, Jessiee Datino, Pierre Epstein, Sarah Grace Wilson and Grant James Varjas.

Playwright Altman, according to press notes, "brings the devil, demons and infidelity center stage in Sin, a new comedy that pits a happily married couple against the devil himself. On Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, the devil and his demons descend on the tiny town of Frampol. Satan has chosen this most solemn of occasions to test the faith of a happily married couple and in the process ruins their lives. It's a devilish look at two love triangles, one human and one heavenly."

The production features sets by Michael Locher, lights by Matthew McCarthy and costumes by China Lee. Mark Stuart is the associate director; Robert Rees has composed music for the show.

Performances are scheduled for Tuesdays at 7 PM, Wednesdays-Saturdays at 8 PM with matinees on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2 PM and Sundays at 3 PM.
