Previously scheduled to start Jan. 27, the MCC canceled its first preview "due to wardrobe issues." Costumes for the work, which is set in 1958 and the present, were not ready. Joe Mantello (Glengarry Glen Ross, Take Me Out) directs the production that is still slated to open Feb. 16 for a run through March 10.
Hugh Dancy (Journey's End, "Adam") stars with Adam James ("Last Chance Harvey"), Andrea Risenborough (Ivanov - Donmar Warehouse) and Ben Whishaw ("Bright Star," "Brideshead Revisited").
"Oliver, Philip and Sylvia are caught in a kind of erotic time warp," according to MCC. "Their complex love triangle, replete with conflicting loyalties and passions, jumps from 1958 to the present and back in a maelstrom of fantasy, repression and rebellion in this innovative new drama." The play premiered in London at the Royal Court in 2008.
The Off-Broadway run of The Pride features the design team of David Zinn (scenic), Mattie Ullrich (costume), Paul Gallo (lighting) and Jill DuBoff (sound).
Tickets to The Pride at the Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street) are available by calling (212) 279-4200. For more information, visit mcctheater.org.
