Written and directed by Shanley, the world premiere officially opened Off-Broadway October 24, and was twice extended. The Portuguese Kid tells the story of two mismatched couples living in Providence as they navigate love, death, childhood fears, and one very domineering mother.

The show played its final public performance December 10 at MTC’s New York City Center Stage I. The BroadwayHD capture was filmed the following day in front of an invited audience. Representatives for MTC and BroadwayHD declined to comment on the taping.
