Directed by George Street artistic director David Saint, the production will play through Feb. 15. The cast comprises Matthew Arkin, Heidi Armbruster, Christopher Curry and Kathleen McNenny. In a previous statement director Saint said, "My first season here, we presented Donald Margulies' Collected Stories with the great Uta Hagen. I am so pleased to be able to produce another play by this gifted writer at the Playhouse. This profound piece is my favorite work by Donald Margulies."

Sight Unseen, according to press notes, is "the story of Jonathan Waxman – a rock star of the modern art world. After a German critic questions his motives as a Jewish artist, he wrestles with an unexpected identity crisis. His search for himself leads him to the door of Patricia, his now-married ex-lover, and the subject of his first great painting ten years prior. Can she re-ignite the inner fire he has lost?"

The creative team includes set designer Michael Anania, lighting and sound designer Christopher J. Bailey and costume designer Mimi Maxmen.

Tickets, priced $28-$64, are available by calling (732) 246-7717 or by visiting www.GSPonline.org. George Street Playhouse is located at 9 Livingston Avenue in New Brunswick, NJ.
