The world premiere of John Patrick Shanley’s The Portuguese Kid opened Off-Broadway October 24. The Manhattan Theatre Club production is led by Seinfeld star Jason Alexander and Tony nominee Sherie Renee Scott.
Rounding out the company are Mary Testa, Pico Alexander, and Aimee Carrero.
The play follows a pair of two middle-aged people in Rhode Island, who have known each other since childhood but are currently mismatched with younger partners. The “will they won’t they” tale follows the two as they navigate real estate deals, underwhelming poetry, and his imposing mother.
Performances are scheduled to run at New York City Center Stage I through December 3 following a recently announced extension.
