Hugh Dancy and Ben Whishaw star in the MCC Theater American premiere of Alexi Kaye Campbell's The Pride, opening Off-Broadway Feb. 16 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.

Joe Mantello (Glengarry Glen Ross, Take Me Out) directs the production that began previews Jan. 28 for a run through March 10.

Dancy (Journey's End, "Adam") and Whishaw ("Bright Star," "Brideshead Revisited") star in the work with Adam James ("Last Chance Harvey") and Andrea Risenborough (Ivanov - Donmar Warehouse).

"Oliver, Philip and Sylvia are caught in a kind of erotic time warp," according to MCC. "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." The play premiered in London at the Royal Court in 2008.

The design team includes David Zinn (scenic), Mattie Ullrich (costume), Paul Gallo (lighting) and Jill DuBoff (sound).



MCC will next present Beth Henley's Family Week (April 7-May 23). Film director Jonathan Demme will directs a cast thate features Kathleen Chalfant, Rosemarie DeWitt, Quincy Tyler Bernstine and Sami Gayle.

Tickets to The Pride at the Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street) are available by calling (212) 279-4200. For more information, visit mcctheater.org.
