The Broadway premiere of Martyna Majok's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Cost of Living began previews September 13 and officially opens its run at Manhattan Theatre Club’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre October 3. Get a look at the production below.
The cast of four stars Tony nominee Kara Young (Clyde's) as Jess, David Zayas (Anna in the Tropics) as Eddie, Lucille Lortel winner Gregg Mozgala (Teenage Dick) as John, and Lucille Lortel winner Katy Sullivan (The Long Red Road) as Ani. Mozgala and Sullivan reprise their roles as veterans of MTC’s Off-Broadway production of the play in 2017. They are joined by fellow alum of the 2017 Off-Broadway run Jo Bonney, who directs the Broadway run.
Majok’s play follows four people in very different circumstances—ranging from unemployment to physical disability—trying to get by.
A Lucille Lortel nominee, Bonney (Mlima's Tale) helms the creative team comprised of Lucille Lortel-nominated scenic designer Wilson Chin (Space Dogs), Drama Desk-nominated costume designer Jessica Pabst (She Kills Monsters), Tony-winning lighting designer Jeff Croiter (Peter and the Starcatcher), and Tony-winning sound designer Robert Kaplowitz (Fela!). Original music is by Tony nominee Mikaal Sulaiman (Macbeth), and movement is by Drama Desk winner Thomas Schall (A Soldier's Play). The Telsey Office, Caparelliotis Casting, and Kelly Gillespie cast the production. David Lurie-Perret is production stage manager.
