Rehearsals are now underway with previews set to begin Dec. 28 at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. An official opening night on Broadway is scheduled for Jan. 20, 2015.
Tony and two-time Golden Globe winner Lavin stars as family matriarch Anna in Greenberg's newest play about love and secrets, helmed by MTC artistic director Lynne Meadow. The production reunites Greenberg with director Meadow following their collaboration on The Assembled Parties.
Here's how the show is billed: "On the verge of death for the umpteenth time, Anna (Lavin) makes a shocking confession to her grown children: an affair from her past that just might have resonance beyond the family. But how much of what she says is true? While her children try to separate fact from fiction, Anna fights for a legacy she can be proud of. With razor-sharp wit and extraordinary insight, Our Mother’s Brief Affair considers the sweeping, surprising impact of indiscretions both large and small."
