Directed by Tony Award nominee Thomas Kail (In the Heights, Lombardi, Magic/Bird), The Tutors features Changchien (Second Stage's Warrior Class and Year Zero) as Kwan, Dellapina (Roundabout's The Dream Of The Burning Boy) as Jow, Dollar ("Guiding Light," Completeness at Playwrights Horizons) as Heidi, Nobbs (Lombardi, The Lion in the Winter) as Toby and Perfetti (Picnic, Off-Broadway's Sons of the Prophet) as Milo.
Previews began May 22 at Second Stage's uptown home, the McGinn/Cazale Theatre on Broadway at 76th Street. Performances continue through June 16.
Here's how Second Stage bills the new work: "No one dreams of being a tutor: just ask Heidi, Toby and Joe. While catering to the offspring of New York elite has forced them to confront the anticlimax of adulthood, these roommates are not ready to give up on their social networking startup – just yet. When Heidi’s online editing begins to invade her subconscious and a student crosses the line, all three friends might be in over their heads. A funny, heartfelt look at day jobs versus dream jobs and the people we count on to remind us of the difference."
The Tutors features scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Jessica Jahn, lighting design by Betsy Adams, sound design by Jill DuBoff and fight direction by Thomas Schall.
The McGinn/Cazale Theatre is located at Broadway and 76th Street, 3rd floor. For more information and tickets, call (212) 246-4422 or visit 2ST.com.
