Carl Forsman directs Jenkins and Stanton in their own comedy. Previews began Oct. 12 for a run through Nov. 19 at 59E59 Theaters. (The work runs in repertory with Lee Blessing's A Body of Water.) "Real and theatrical worlds collide in Love Child," according to an announcement. The comedy centers on "the night a classic play spoke so loudly to its audience that its audience felt compelled to talk back."
A developmental presentation of Love Child was previously seen at New York Stage and Film. Stanton was recently seen on Broadway in The Coast of Utopia; Jenkins continues to co-star in Broadway's Mary Poppins.
The Primary Stages 24th season continues with Blessing's A Body of Water (through Nov. 9), Donald Margulies' Shipwrecked! An Entertainment — The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont (As Told By Himself) (Jan. 27-March 7, 2009) and Tina Howe's world premiere Chasing Manet (March 24-May 2, 2009) with Tony Award winner Jane Alexander.
