News   PHOTO CALL: Reed Birney, Halley Feiffer, Natasha Lyonne and John Magaro in Tigers Be Still at Roundabout Underground Kim Rosenstock's Tigers Be Still — a dark comedy about an art therapist seeking personal and professional happiness — began previews Sept. 10 at the Roundabout Underground program Off-Broadway.

Directed by Sam Gold, the production will officially open Oct. 6 and run through Nov. 21 in the Roundabout's 62-seat Black Box underneath the Laura Pels Theatre.

 

Here's how Roundabout bills the play: "Tigers Be Still is a comedy that follows the story of Sherry Wickman [played by Feiffer], a young woman who expects the perfect career and life to fall into place immediately upon earning her masters degree in art therapy. Instead, Sherry finds herself unemployed, overwhelmed and back at home hiding out in her twin-sized childhood bed. But when Sherry gets hired as a substitute art teacher, things begin to brighten up. Now if only her mother would come downstairs, her sister would get off the couch, her very first therapy patient would do just one of his take-home assignments, her new boss would leave his gun at home, and someone would catch the tiger that escaped from the local zoo, everything would be just perfect. "

Here is a look at the production:

The Black Box Theatre is part of the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre at 111 W. 46th Street in Manhattan. All tickets for Tigers Be Still will be issued as general admission passes for first-come, first-served seating on the show date.
