"Ugly Betty" Star America Ferrera Cast in World Premiere of Laura Marks' Bethany in NYC
By Michael Gioia
Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner America Ferrera, best known for her work on the ABC comedy "Ugly Betty," will star in the world premiere of Laura Marks' Bethany, which will kick off the Women's Project Theater's 35th season Jan. 11, 2013.
Directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch, the limited engagement will continue through Feb. 17, 2013, at City Center Stage II in New York City.
The work, according to Women's Project, "is a darkly comic exploration of the limits of morality in desperate times. Set in an American exurb wiped out by foreclosures, the play follows Crystal [Ferrera], a financially-strapped woman who discovers just how far she'll go to regain what she’s lost."
Other members of the creative team include set designer Lauren Helpern, costume designer Sarah Holden, lighting designer Mark Barton and sound designer Leon Rothenberg.
City Center Stage II is located at 131 West 55th Street. For more information and tickets, call (212) 581-1212 or visit WomensProject.org.
