Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Colin Woodell will star in Second Stage Theater's Off-Broadway revival of Dying City by Christopher Shinn. The spring production, directed by Lila Neugebauer (Waverly Gallery, Mary Page Marlowe), will begin previews May 14.
Set in a sparse Manhattan apartment, Dying City explores the human fallout of global events, including the Iraq War and 9/11. In Shinn's 2008 Pulitzer Prize finalist—first seen at London's Royal Court in 2006—a young widow receives an unexpected visit from the twin brother of her deceased husband.
2ST's Off-Broadway revival of Dying City will officially open June 3 in the Tony Kiser Theater.
Winstead will soon be seen opposite Margot Robbie in the film Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), as well as in Gemini Man, opposite Will Smith. Her other film and television credits include 10 Cloverfield Lane, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and Fargo.
Woodell will soon be seen in the Disney feature film Call of the Wild, opposite Harrison Ford and Dan Stevens. He recently starred in Eugene O'Neill's A Long Day's Journey Into Night at the Geffen Playhouse, and has been seen in the TV shows Masters of Sex, Designated Survivor, and The Purge.
Dying City will feature scenic design by Dane Laffrey, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Tyler Micoleau, and sound design by Bray Poor. Casting is by Telsey + Company.
