Manhattan Theatre Club celebrated the official opening of Dan Cody’s Yacht, a new play by Anthony Giardina, June 6. Loosely inspired by a passage from The Great Gatsby, the play examines the cost of educational opportunity in America today.

Tony Award winner Doug Hughes directs a cast led by Kristen Bush (Taking Care of Baby, The City of Conversation), who plays a single schoolteacher who receives a financial proposal that could change her daughter’s life.

Rounding out the cast are Meredith Forlenza (1984, The Winslow Boy), Laura Kai Chen (Her, Days of Our Lives), Rick Holmes (Junk, Peter and the Starcatcher), Roxanna Hope Radja (Ruins of Civilization at MTC, Torch Song), John Kroft (Dracula), Jordan Lage (Race, Speed-the-Plow), and Casey Whyland (Billy Elliot the Musical).
