Both LaBute (The Mercy Seat, The Shape of Things) and MCC (Frozen) are enjoying heightened success this season. The Distance From Here, according to a press release, "dissects the lives of six Americans trapped in a web of anger, deception and bad parents". At left are audience members and Tabooco-stars Jeffrey Carlson and Euan Morton, and Distance star Anna Paquin.

The Distance From Here is directed by Michael Greif, with setings by Louisa Thompson, costumes by Angela Wendt, lighting by James Vermeulen, and sound by Robert Kaplowitz. The production is scheduled to run through June 5.
