All Aboard the Marriage Hearse played an extended run at Theater for the New City in winter 2008. Morillo will again direct the production, which runs through May 16.
Original Marriage Hearse cast members Nick Coleman and Jessica Moreno will reprise their performances. The production also reunites creative team members Mark Marcante (set design) and Amith A. Chandrashaker (lighting design). (Both Coleman and Moreno also originated roles in Morillo's debut work Angry Young Women in Low Rise Jeans With High Class Issues.)
Theater for the New City has also announced that Morillo's Angry Young Women will receive a revival Dec. 3-20, and Morillo's latest work, Mr. Right Now, will premiere there Jan. 7-30, 2010.
A separate double-bill of Marriage Hearse and Morillo's Stay Over will also be seen in Hollywood May 29-July 5 at the Lounge Theatre.
Original press notes for Marriage Hearse read: "Sean and Amy are your typical co-habitating, Catholic/Jewish, twentysomething couple living in Manhattan. They work hard, love each other and share common goals in life. Well, sort of. After nearly three years together, Amy wants to get married but Sean does not believe in the institution. Tonight is the night when they will settle the marriage question once and for all. They will both bring their "A" game and the gloves will come off. Sean will try to talk her out of it. Amy will try to talk him into it. Will they break up? Will they keep going on the path they're on? Will they climb aboard the 'Marriage Hearse'?" All Aboard the Marriage Hearse will play Theater for the New City, located at 155 First Avenue in Manhattan. Tickets are available by calling (212) 868-4444 or by visiting www.smarttix.com.
