Long Wharf associate artistic director Eric Ting directs the production, which casts Morris as a displaced Texan finding her way in Manhattan. Bad Dates began performances Feb. 18 and will run through March 22 on Long Wharf's Stage II.
Press notes for Bad Dates state, "Haley Walker is a Texan in New York City with a top-tier restaurant to run, a teenage daughter to raise, and a dating scene to navigate. From the privacy of her bedroom, she dishes about her hilarious dating adventures. With charm and quirky grace, Haley takes us through a motley array of suitors, looking for the man who will fit her like a great pair of shoes."
Morris' stage credits include Tartuffe: Born Again, Uncommon Women and Others, Rodney's Wife and The Uneasy Chair. On screen she is known for her work in "Who's That Girl," "Reckless," "Love or Money," "Home Alone 3," "One Tree Hill," "One Life To Live," "Sex and the City," "Cosby" and "Family Ties."
Designing Bad Dates are Frank J. Alberino (set design), Jessica Wegener (costume design), Josh Epstein (lighting design) and Corinne K. Livingston (sound design).
