Performances begin February 11 for Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere of a new play by Richard Greenberg. Set inside a Fifth Avenue apartment, The Perplexed sees two families—whose lives have been tumultuously intertwined for decades—gather to celebrate the marriage of their children.
Directed by Artistic Director Lynne Meadow, The Perplexed features a cast made up of Patrick Breen (The New Englanders, The Normal Heart), Margaret Colin (The Columnist, Carousel), Gregg Edelman (City Of Angels, Into the Woods), Tess Frazer (Godless, Mary Page Marlowe), Anna Itty (His Man, Learning to Drive), Ilana Levine (My Name is Asher Lev, Wrong Mountain), Eric William Morris (King Kong, Coram Boy), Zane Pais (Margo at The Wedding, Room 104), JD Taylor (Georgia Mertching Is Dead, Law & Order: SVU), and Frank Wood (The Great Society, Flight of the Concords).
The production features scenic design by Santo Loquasto, costume design by Rita Ryack, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, and sound design by Fitz Patton.
The world premiere, staged at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I, will officially open March 3.
