Second Stage Theatre's production of Lucy Teitler’s dark comedy Engagements, directed by Kimberly Senior, officially opens August 4 Off-Broadway. The New York premiere began performances July 18 and is part of the Off-Broadway theatre’s Uptown Series at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre.
The cast features Jennifer Kim, Omar Maskati, Ana Nogueira, Michael Stahl-David and Brooke Weisman.
Set at a New England engagement party, Teitler’s play seeks to expose the truth behind beautiful facades. “The wildflowers, specialty cocktails, and artisanal appetizers are totally Instagram-worthy, but the people are not quite so perfect,” state press notes. “One night, Lauren takes it into her own hands to make sure that her best friend doesn’t marry an inadequate suitor – a drunken mistake that incites a cascade of calamities, threatening to expose all of Lauren's secrets. Engagements is a dark comedy about ugly feelings in an age of beautiful self-images.”
The production features scenic design by Wilson Chin, costumes by Beth Goldenberg, lighting design by Jen Schriever and sound design by Ryan Rumery.
