News   Will Worth Street's Moonlight Room Transfer to Theatre Row?
 
The Worth Street Theatre's recent success, Moonlight Room by Tristine Skyler, may transfer to a commercial run at midtown's Theatre Row, the New York Times reported.

No official announcement has been made, and a Worth Street spokesperson could not be reached at press time. The Times referred to the transfer as "increasingly likely," and mentioned the Beckett and Clurman theatres. The show began previews Oct. 31 at the Tribeca Playhouse (111 Reade Street) and opened Nov. 3 to a career-making review from the Times' Bruce Weber.

Its closing date of Nov. 24 was soon extended to Dec. 7, and then Dec. 14. Artistic director Jeff Cohen, as with all Worth shows, directed.

Moonlight is set in the waiting room of a New York City hospital ER. There, two adolescents wait to hear the fate of their friend, while navigating tense relationships with various parents and siblings. Featured in the cast are Laura Breckenridge, Lawrence Jones, Kathryn Layng, Mark Rosenthal and Brendan Sexton III.

Skyler's background lies mainly in television and film. As an actress, she has appeared on TV in "Providence" and "Angel," and in the film "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch II." As a screenwriter, she co-authored "Getting to Know You." She also starred in and co-produced the movie "Final Draft," which featured Rosenthal.
