Performances begin Jan. 11, 2013, toward a Jan. 20 opening at New York City Center Stage II. Rehearsals began Dec. 3.
Gaye Taylor Upchurch (Off-Broadway's Bluebird and Harper Regan) directs the play set in an American exurb that has been wiped out by foreclosures. "Ferrera stars as a financially-strapped woman who discovers just how far she'll go to regain what she has lost," according to WPT.
Ferrera was last seen on the New York stage in the 2005 Off-Broadway production of Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead, directed by Trip Cullman. Ferrera was recently seen on stage in London where she starred as Roxie Hart in an eight-week run in the West End production of Chicago. Ferrera recently wrapped production on Diego Luna's biopic, "Chavez," about civil-rights activist and labor organizer Cesar Chavez (she plays his wife, Helen).
The production team includes Lauren Helpern (set design), Sarah Holden (costume designer), Mark Barton (lighting designer) and Leon Rothenberg (sound designer). Jess Johnston is stage manager.
Performances play to Feb. 17, 2013. City Center Stage II is located at 131 West 55th Street. For more information and tickets, call (212) 581-1212 or visit WomensProject.org.
