The New Group's world-premiere production of Sharr White’s The True opens Off-Broadway September 20. In the new play, Edie Falco (Oz, The Sopranos) stars as Dorothea "Polly” Noonan, the blunt, profane, decades-long defender of Albany’s Democratic Party machine.

The True is billed as an intimate portrait of the bounds of love, loyalty, and female power in the male-dominated world of 1977 patronage politics. Artistic Director Scott Elliott directs.

Performances of The True began September 4 at The Pershing Square Signature Center in The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre, where the production has been extended through October 28.

Completing the cast Off-Broadway are Austin Cauldwell, Glenn Fitzgerald, Michael McKean, John Pankow, Peter Scolari, and Tracy Shayn.

Scenic design is by Derek McLane, costume design is by Clint Ramos, lighting design is by Jeff Croiter, and sound design is by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen.

The production reunites playwright White with The New Group following the 2014 production of White’s play Annapurna starring Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, and directed by Bart DeLorenzo.
