News   PHOTO CALL: Tigers Be Still, Starring Halley Feiffer, Opens in Roundabout Black Box Halley Feiffer plays an art therapist in need of a little therapy of her own in the dark comedy Tigers Be Still, which opened Oct. 6 as part of Roundabout Theatre Company's Undergound series Off-Broadway.

Reed Birney, Natasha Lyonne and John Magaro also populate Kim Rosenstock's play about an art therapist seeking personal and professional happiness.

 

Sam Gold (Circle Mirror Transformation) directs the production, which began previews Sept. 10 in the Roundabout's 62-seat Black Box underneath the Laura Pels Theatre. Performances continue to Nov. 21.

Here is a look at the opening night:

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."

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 are issued as general admission passes for first-come, first-served seating on the show date.
