Directed by Daniella Topol, the Off-Broadway production will continue through June 29. The cast includes Drew McVety, Kate Nowlin and Henry Stram.
"When a father’s love of music clashes with his daughter’s passion for basketball, modernist composer Charles Ives is the perfect referee," according to press notes. "Charles Ives Take Me Home is a comedic and poignant story of dissonance, defense, and devotion."

The production manager is Eugenia Furneaux; the production stage manager is Kate Croasdale; and the assistant production manager is Alling Langin.

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.
