The Off-Broadway production runs to Sept. 16, opening on Aug. 27, in The Irene Diamond Stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 W. 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues).
In the play, according to Signature notes, "Sally [played by Nicholson] lives with her mysterious family in a cavernous home overlooking Los Angeles. When a visitor arrives, Sally's dark secrets — and the secrets of those around her — threaten to come into the light."
Pulitzer Prize winner Shepard (A Lie of the Mind, Curse of the Starving Class, True West, Buried Child) was Signature's 1996-97 Playwright-in-Residence.
The production team includes Eugene Lee (scenic designer), Kaye Voyce (costume designer), Tyler Micoleau (lighting designer) and Eric Shimelonis (sound designer). Donald Fried is production stage manager.
Subscriptions are currently on sale for the 2012-13 season, which will also include plays by David Henry Hwang, Bill Irwin and David Shiner, Regina Taylor, August Wilson and Lanford Wilson.
Tickets to the initial runs of all Signature productions at The Pershing Square Signature Center are $25, part of the Signature Ticket Initiative: A Generation of Access, a program that guarantees affordable and accessible tickets to every Signature production for the next 20 years.
