Bridesburg, a new play by Victor Kaufold and presented by Miscreant Theatre, officially opens Jan. 9 following previews that began Jan. 5 at Off-Broadway's Gene Frankel Theatre.

The play, about "the growing American problem of economic decline and its effect on a young couple," is directed by Jack Young.

The cast features Jeff Barry ("Date Night," "The Company Men"), Susan Ferrara ("Then We Got Help!"), Julian Joseph ("Blue Bloods"), Brianne Moncrief ("The Sopranos," "All My Children") and Mizuo Peck ("Night at the Museum" and its sequel).

Bridesburg, according to production notes, "is a darkly comic and intense look at five working-class Americans struggling to maintain their sanity, while battling the hostilities of today's economic environment. Philadelphians Matt and Kay are young parents-to-be living in the basement of Matt's mother's house. The impending adult responsibility, coupled with the familial stresses of tight living quarters prompts their battle against family, the job market and each other."

Show times are Thursdays-Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 2 PM. Performances will continue through Jan. 29.

The Gene Frankel Theater is located at 24 Bond Street. For tickets, priced $18, visit www.brownpapertickets.com/event/216443 or www.miscreanttheatre.org.
