News   Casting Announced for Timing of a Day; Lin-Manuel Miranda Will Moderate Opening-Night Talkback
Mind The Art Entertainment in association with Intimation Productions will present a limited engagement of The Timing of a Day, the award-winning 2010 Fringe Festival production written by Owen Panettieri and directed by Joey Brenneman, March 30-April 17 at Center Stage NY.

The cast will comprise Justin Anselmi, Miguel Govea, Nik Kourtis and  R. Elizabeth Woodard; all, except Govea, were in the Fringe production.

The engagement will begin with a Benefit Gala March 30 at 8 PM. The evening will include a talkback with the playwright, director and cast that will be moderated by In the Heights Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda; a cocktail reception will follow the performance.

The Timing of a Day, according to press notes, "follows three New York City roommates who share a loving (if cramped) Harlem apartment and a similarly loving (if cramped) triangular friendship. As the play opens, the three find themselves navigating the regular ups and downs of city life, and the unpleasant question of where their adult lives are taking them, when an unforeseeable tragedy rips them from the ordinary and changes the course of their lives and friendships forever. What follows is the reshuffled story of their time living together viewed over the course of a single day. Slices of their future, present, and past weave together in new ways, illustrating what it is that really draws these three people together, as well as what pulls them apart. While examining life, love, and loss from one sunrise to the next, each individual is forced to question if there really is such a thing as 'perfect timing' or if all timing is just perfectly flawed."

The opening-night benefit tickets are $100; to reserve tickets, visit  or make a $100 tax-deductible contribution at (in the "contribute" section).

Tickets for all other performances are priced $18 in advance, $20 at the door, $13 students. Visit
