Tony winner Joe Mantello (Wicked, Take Me Out) directs the production for MCC Theater that will officially open Feb. 16, 2010, at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. The limited engagement will conclude March 20, 2010.
Riseborough (Ivanov, "Happy Go Lucky") and Whishaw ("Bright Star," "Brideshead Revisited") make their American stage debuts in the production alongside Dancy (Broadway's Journey's End, "Adam"). A fourth cast member is to be announced.
MCC notes for The Pride read: "Oliver, Philip and Sylvia are caught in a kind of erotic time warp. Their complex love triangle, replete with conflicting loyalties and passions, jumps from 1958 to the present and back in a maelstrom of fantasy, repression and rebellion in this innovative new drama."
Tickets to MCC Theater's shows at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, 121 Christopher Street, are currently available by visiting www.mcctheater.org.
