The Awake, Starring Maulik Pancholy, to Play 59E59 Theaters

59E59 Theaters will feature kef theatrical productions' The Awake, which will begin performances Aug. 22 for a limited engagement through Sept. 8.

Here's how the show is described: "Three sleepers — a devoted son, an Eastern European actress and a Canadian man on the run — awaken to the fact that a mysterious corporation connects them. A meditation on contemporary America and how we live in a world we no longer understand."

The creative team includes David L. Arsenault (scenic design), Travis McHale (lighting design) and Lisa Zinni (costume design).
