Playwrights Horizons celebrated the opening of the world premiere of Log Cabin June 25, a new play by Pulitzer Prize finalist Jordan Harrison in which a tight-knit group of gays and lesbians considers the new mainstream through the eyes of their transgender friend.
The new ensemble-driven drama, directed by Tony winner Pam MacKinnon, features a cast led by stage and screen star Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Completing the cast are Phillip James Brannon (Antipodes, Bootycandy), Cindy Cheung (High Maintenance, 13 Reasons Why), stand-up comic and actor Ian Harvie (Transparent, The Ian Harvie Show), Talene Monahon (Tell Hector I Miss Him, The Wild Party), and Dolly Wells (The Whirligig, Bridget Jones’s Diary).
Log Cabin is playing in the company’s Mainstage Theater, where it is scheduled to run through July 15.
