Labyrinth Theater Company's production of Bob Glaudini's A Family for All Occasions, which is directed by former Labyrinth co-artistic director Philip Seymour Hoffman, began performances April 25 Off-Broadway.
Opening night was May 12 at the Bank Street Theater.
The cast comprises Jeffrey DeMunn (The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, “The Walking Dead”), William Jackson Harper (Modern Terrorism, Ruined), Justine Lupe (Not Fade Away, “Harry’s Law”), Labyrinth Company member Deirdre O’Connell (Thinner Than Water, Circle Mirror Transformation) and Charlie Saxton (Movie 43, “Hung”).
"Howard could use some decent conversation," according to press notes. "At the outset of his retirement, when he'd rather be enjoying the simple things in life, he's stuck dealing with his disconcerting, promiscuous daughter, his computer-obsessed, reclusive son, and his vastly overtired second wife. It's only when his daughter's latest suitor drops by after a hazy night that a family on edge is delivered to its inevitable, unforeseen fate."
The production also features scenic design by David Meyer, costume design by Gali Noy, lighting design by Japhy Weideman and sound design by Jill B.C. DuBoff.
The Bank Street Theater is located at 155 Bank St. Tickets start at $35. Visit labtheater.org or call (212) 513-1080.
