MCC’s world premiere of Lucy Thurber’s new play Transfers is set to begin performances Off-Broadway April 5. Directed by Jackson Gay, the production will officially open April 23.
Inspired by young artists participating in MCC’s Theater Youth Company, Transfers tells the story of two gifted young men (played by Ato Blankson-Wood and Juan Castano) from the South Bronx competing for a life-changing scholarship at an elite university. During a campus visit, the two students are confronted with their shared past.
