MCC Theater’s production of Seared, by Theresa Rebeck, has extended for a third time, with performances now scheduled through December 22. The Off-Broadway limited engagement was initially planned through November 10 before extending to December 1, then December 15.

The play, starring four-time Tony nominee Raúl Esparza, opened October 28.

Directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel, the production also features W. Tré Davis, Krysta Rodriguez, and David Mason.

In Seared, brilliant chef Harry (Esparza) scores a mention in a food magazine with his signature scallops, and his business partner Mike (Mason) finally sees profits within reach. The only problem: Harry refuses to recreate his masterpiece for the masses. Then mix in a shrewd restaurant consultant (Rodriguez) and a waiter (Davis) with dreams of his own.
