Critics have filed their reviews for Theresa Rebeck’s new play Seared, which opened at MCC October 28, starring four-time Tony nominee Raúl Esparza (Company).
Directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel, the comedy follows hot-headed chef Harry, who scores big with a food magazine mention featuring his signature scallops. His business partner Mike finally sees profits within reach, but Harry refuses to recreate his masterpiece for the masses.
Esparza plays Harry opposite David Mason (Trick or Treat) as Mike, Krystra Rodriguez (Spring Awakening) as a shrewd restaurant consultant, and W. Tré Davis (Valor) as a waiter with dreams of his own.
