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.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
