Here is a look at the opening night:
Break of Noon, With David Duchovny and Amanda Peet, Opens Off-Broadway
Duchovny ("Californication," "X-Files") makes his New York stage debut as John Smith, a man who sees the face of God during a gruesome office shooting. He is joined by Amanda Peet (Barefoot in the Park, "Studio Sixty"), Tony Award nominee John Earl Jelks (Radio Golf, Gem of the Ocean) and Tracee Chimo (Bachelorette, Circle Mirror Transformation).
"Amidst the chaos and horror of the worst office shooting in American history, John Smith sees the face of God," read MCC notes. "His modern-day revelation creates a maelstrom of disbelief among everyone he knows. A newcomer to faith, John urgently searches for a modern response to the age-old question: at what cost salvation?"
