Directed by David Auburn (author of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning Proof), performances of the two-person play will begin June 2 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street) prior to an official opening June 19.
MCC Theater’s 2008 hit Fifty Words, which co-starred Norbert Leo Butz and Elizabeth Marvel, culminated in one desperate phone call. Side Effects, according to press notes, is "the story of what happened on the other end of the line. ... Hugh and Lindy’s marriage seems picture-perfect, a beacon in their microcosmic Midwestern world of dinner parties and fundraisers. But, behind closed doors - doors they can barely keep shut - they’re falling apart and Hugh’s rising political star is suddenly imperiled."
MCC’s world-premiere production of Sharr White’s The Other Place, directed by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello, has been extended through May 1.
Tickets for The Other Place and Side Effects are available by visiting www.mcctheater.org or by contacting Ticket Central directly at www.ticketcentral.com.
