Kristen Bush, the lone actress in Simon Gray's The Common Pursuit, takes Playbill.com backstage at the Laura Pels Theater during a recent performance and then out for drinks with the boys.
She documents some pre-show rituals and offers a glimpse of the cast blowing off steam after another successful performance!
Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Simon Gray's comedy-drama The Common Pursuit, about literary-minded college friends who are changed over the years, opened May 24 following previews from May 4 at RTC's Off-Broadway home at the Laura Pels Theatre.
Tony Award nominee Moisés Kaufman directs Kristen Bush as Marigold, Kieran Campion as Peter, Josh Cooke as Stuart, Jacob Fishel as Martin, Tim McGeever as Humphry and Lucas Near-Verbrugghe as Nick.
Kaufman directed Broadway's I Am My Own Wife (for which he received a Tony nomination) and 33 Variations and Off-Broadway's The Laramie Project. This is a limited engagement through July 29.
The design team includes Derek McLane (sets), Clint Ramos (costumes) and David Lander (lights).
The Common Pursuit had its American premiere at Long Wharf Theater in 1985. The first Off-Broadway production in 1986 ran 352 performances and received the 1987 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play and the 1987 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play.
Kaufman most recently directed the Broadway production of Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo. He is one of the playwrights whose work is featured in Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays.
The Common Pursuit plays Tuesday through Saturday evening at 7:30 PM with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 PM.
The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre/Laura Pels Theatre is at 111 W. 46th Street.
