Carolyn Cantor (The Great God Pan, After the Revolution) directs the production that officially opens May 6. The run is currently scheduled through May 18.
Here's how it's billed: "With the world around him changing at a dizzying pace, the owner of a small travel agency clings to the values he holds most dear: teamwork, loyalty and the incalculable importance of a good trust fall. It takes a weekend staff retreat for him to realize his team-building exercises won't put off the realities of a rapidly evolving marketplace. Core Values is a play about where Americans live: work."
Ars Nova commissioned the play during Levenson's tenure as the company's 2010 artist-in-residence. His play The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin will have its world premiere Off-Broadway at the Roundabout Theatre Company in June. He is currently at work on a new musical with Dogfight and A Christmas Story writers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
