Davidson, Martinez and Mosley Are Ball Players in MTC's Back Back Back

News   Davidson, Martinez and Mosley Are Ball Players in MTC's Back Back Back The New York City premiere of Itamar Moses' Back Back Back, about baseball in the age of steroids, will feature Jeremy Davidson, James Martinez and Michael Mosley, Manhattan Theatre Club announced.

Daniel Aukin will direct the production, to play MTC at New York City Center Stage II starting Oct. 30. The limited engagement will open Nov. 18.

Davidson's credits include "Army Wives" and Brick in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at The Kennedy Center; Martinez appeared in U.S. Drag Off-Broadway and A Midsummer Night's Dream at McCarter Theatre; and Mosley's credits include TV's "The Wire," "Generation Kill" and "Kidnapped" and more.

Aukin is former artistic director of Soho Rep.

According to MTC production notes, "Does greatness always come with a price? Can only someone with nothing to lose tell the whole truth? From Itamar Moses, the acclaimed writer of last season's MTC Stage II hit The Four of Us and Bach at Leipzig, comes a stirring new drama about America's favorite pastime. Back Back Back follows the turbulent careers of three very different teammates (Davidson, Martinez, and Mosley) in baseball's steroid era whose clubhouse secrets bring them under federal scrutiny. This timely new play reveals a riveting portrait of pressure, paranoia and payback in professional sports."

The creative team will include David Zinn (scenic and costume design), David Weiner (lighting design) and Ryan Rumery & Daniel Baker (sound design). For more information visit www.ManhattanTheatreClub.com.
