Max von Essen, recently seen on Broadway in a Tony-nominated turn in the award-winning An American in Paris, co-stars in the Mint Theater's world premiere of Miles Malleson's Yours Unfaithfully, which officially opens January 26 following previews that began December 27 at The Beckett Theater at Theatre Row.
Mint artistic director Jonathan Bank directs the production, which continues Off-Broadway through February 18.
The cast also features Todd Cerveris (South Pacific, Twentieth Century), Mikaela Izquierdo (Cyrano de Bergerac), Elisabeth Gray (Breakfast at Tiffany’s), and Stephen Schnetzer (Wit, The Goat).
Yours Unfaithfully, which was published in 1933 but never produced, is described as “an insightful, intelligent and exceptionally intimate peek behind the closed doors of an open marriage. Stephen and Anne, blissfully happy for eight years, are committed to living up to their ideals. When Stephen, a writer who isn’t writing, begins to sink into a funk of unproductive moodiness, Anne encourages him to seek out a fresh spark. Can their marriage survive uncompromising generosity, sacrifice and love?”
Miles Malleson’s most successful play was The Fanatics, which played in both London and New York in 1927.
Performances are at The Beckett Theatre at Theater Row (410 West 42nd Street between 9th and Dyer Avenues). Tickets can be purchased online at Telecharge.com, by phone at (212) 239-6200 or in person at the Theatre Row Box Office. For more information visit minttheater.org.
