Lost Lake (Off-Broadway at New York City Center – Stage I). Academy Award nominee John Hawkes made his New York stage debut in the Manhattan Theatre Club world premiere of David Auburn's new play Lost Lake, which also features Rent star Tracie Thoms. "The lakeside rental Veronica (Tracie Thoms) has managed to afford is a far cry from the idyllic getaway she and her children so desperately need," press notes state. "And the disheveled property owner, Hogan (John Hakwes), has problems of his own – problems that Veronica is inevitably and irrevocably – pulled into. An engrossing and revealing portrait of two strangers bound together by circumstance, Lost Lake is a vivid new work about the struggle for connection in an imperfect world." Visit LostLakeMTC.com.
