News   Margulies' Sight Unseen, Once of Off-Bway, Gets Bway Bow in 2004 Via MTC Sight Unseen, the Donald Margulies drama set in the art world, will gets its Broadway debut in spring 2004, via Manhattan Theatre Club, the playwright confirmed to Playbill On-Line.

MTC staged the work more than a decade ago, and since that time Margulies went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for drama for Dinner With Friends, his examination of two couples and the fallout after one of them splits up.

Sight Unseen was commissioned and world premiered in 1991 by South Coast Repertory Theatre in California and got its New York premiere by MTC in 1992.

This fall, in its first season in its Broadway home at the former Biltmore Theatre, MTC will stage Richard Greenberg's The Violet Hour, followed by Regina Taylor's Drowning Crow, inspired by Chekhov's The Seagull. Sight Unseen follows in spring 2004.

No cast or creative team has been announced for the 2003-04 works. MTC is also offering its Off-Broadway season at Stage I and Stage II at City Center. Explored in recent months for the upcoming season have been Neil Simon's Rose and Walsh; Adam Goldfarb's Sarah Sarah; the musical, The Rhythm Club and more, according to sources in the community.
