Hartford Stage kicks off the new year with Annalee Jefferies as the recently single mom in Theresa Rebeck's Bad Dates, Jan. 6.
Hartford Stage's associate artistic director Jeremy B. Cohen directs the mainstage production set to open Jan. 12 for a run through Feb. 6.
In Bad Dates, Jefferies stars as restaurant manager and shoe connoisseur Haley Walker who has recently rejoined the dating scene. As she prepares for yet another evening out, the Jimmy Choos devotee relates her experiences with gentlemen callers.
Jefferies has appeared at Hartford Stage in 8 by Tenn, Edward Albee's Seascape, A Streetcar Named Desire, Three Sisters and The Night of the Iguana. She has also appeared on Broadway in The Wake of Jamey Foster and Off-Broadway in What Didn't Happen.
The Connecticut company will next present Eduardo Machado's The Cook (Feb. 24-March 27), Othello (April 7-May 8) and Tennessee Williams' Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (May 26-June 26).

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
