Directed by Robert Kalfin, the production will play the Manhattan venue Nov. 14-Dec. 14. Opening night is scheduled for Nov. 21 at 8 PM.
The cast will feature Sam Tsoutsouvas (By Jeeves, Our Country's Good) as Chris Christopherson, Jenne Vath as Anna and Roger Clark as Mat Burke with Joe Atack, Nick Delany, Ian Campbell Dunn, Zakary Spicer, Rob Sulaver, Karen Christie-Ward, Zachary Spicer and Rob Sulaver.
Anna Christie, according to the Metropolitan Playhouse, concerns Anna, the "ruined" daughter who comes East to find her estranged father — and he's "both less and more than she hoped, while the love she makes with boiler stoker Mat Burke threatens to destroy all three of their yearning souls."
Show times will be Thursdays-Saturdays at 8 PM and Saturdays and Sundays at 3 PM with 7:30 Sunday performancees Nov. 30 and Dec. 7. There will be a special, pay-what-you-will performance Nov. 17 at 7:30 PM.
