MCC Theater has announced a second and final extension for the New York premiere of the Paul Downs Colaizzo college-set drama Really Really, starring Matt Lauria, Zosia Mamet and Evan Jonigkeit, which will play an additional six performances at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.
Obie Award winner David Cromer (Tribes, Our Town, The House of Blue Leaves) directed the production that began previews Jan. 31 and officially opened Feb. 19. Really Really was first extended from March 10 to March 24. It will now continue through March 30.
Really Really is the first play in Colaizzo's Want, Give, Get trilogy. His other plays include Little Gives, The Thing About Getting, Pride in the Falls of Autrey Mill, and For Tomorrow, Please Prepare.
Lauria ("Friday Night Lights," Parenthood"), Mamet ("Girls," "Mad Men") and Jonigkeit (High) are joined by Lauren Culpepper, who appeared in the premiere of the play at the Signature Theatre last winter, as well as David Hull (Wicked, How to Succeed…), Kobi Libii (CQ/CX) and Aleque Reid (Hair).
Really Really, according to MCC, "begins in the hazy aftermath of a wild party when 'the morning after' appears to be just another day in the undergrad carnival that revolves around a close circle of friends. But when morning-after gossip about privileged Davis (Lauria) and ambitious Leigh (Mamet) turns ugly, the veneer of loyalty and friendship is peeled back to reveal a vicious jungle of sexual politics, raw ambition, and class warfare where only the strong could possibly survive."
