Alex Hanna, Louisa Krause, Matthew Maher and Aaron Clifton Moten are featured in The Flick, Annie Baker's new Off-Broadway play that reunites her with director Sam Gold. Playwrights Horizons gives the tale of movie-house employees its world premiere starting Feb. 15.
According to PH notes, "In a run-down movie theatre in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees (Krause, Maher and Moten) mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles, and not-so-tiny heartbreaks, more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen, play out in the empty aisles. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world."
Opening night is March 12. Performances will play to March 31 on Playwrights Horizons' Mainstage Theater at 416 W. 42nd Street.
