"The same week his private equity firm forced massive layoffs at a national grocery chain, Rick (Azaria) threw himself an extravagant engagement party, setting off a publicity nightmare," state production notes. "Fortunately, Seth (Krasinski), one of Rick’s partners, has a win-win deal to invest in an American-made luggage company for a song and rescue his boss from a PR disaster. But Jenny (Danes), Seth’s counterpart, has an entirely different plan: to squeeze every last penny out of the company, no matter the consequences."

The production features scenic design by Rachel Hauck; costume design by Clint Ramos; lighting design by Jason Lyons; and sound design by Lindsay Jones.

Tickets are now available by calling (212) 967-7555, online at PublicTheater.org, or in person at the Taub Box Office at The Public Theater at 425 Lafayette St., Manhattan.
