PHOTO CALL: Off-Broadway's New Century Opens

News   PHOTO CALL: Off-Broadway's New Century Opens Paul Rudnick's The New Century officially opened April 14 at Off-Broadway's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.

Nicholas Martin directs the Lincoln Center Theater presentation that features Linda Lavin, Jayne Houdyshell, Peter Bartlett, Mike Doyle and Christy Pusz. The New Century, as show notes reveal, "is a series of four short plays, which feature everyone from a concerned Long Island mother of at least three gay children (Lavin), to an accomplished Midwestern craftswoman (Houdyshell), to one of Mr. Rudnick's favorites, Mr. Charles, a flamboyant resident of Palm Beach (Barlett). Ultimately, all of these delicious and distraught people collide under surprising and comic circumstances, and we discover just where our new century might be heading."

The opening-night party was held at New York City's O'Neal's. Here are some shots from the evening:
