News   Morillo Comedy Stay Over to Play Theater for the New City in 2009
Matt Morillo's sex comedy, Stay Over — an adaptation of Maria Micheles' dark drama Sleepover — will play a limited winter engagement at the Theater for the New City.

Morillo, the playwright of Angry Young Women in Low Rise Jeans with High Class Issues and All Aboard the Marriage Hearse, will also direct the production, which is scheduled to play the Manhattan venue Jan. 8-31, 2009. (Micheles' original premiered at the Theater for the New City in 2007.)

In Stay Over, press notes state, "Mark and Michelle, a thirty-something couple, are settling in for an affectionate reconciliation on a snowy night in New York. Mark's a bit of a rake, and Michelle had allowed him an outside affair, in the hope that he would 'get it out of his system.' She relents on her tolerance when Lilly, the twenty-something dancer that Mark had dallied with, bursts into their apartment out of the snow, hoping to stay over."

Angry Young Women veterans JessAnn Smith and Tom Pilutik portray Lilly and Tom, respectively, with Lori Faiella as Michelle.

The production has designs by Mark Marcante (set design), Amith A. Chandrashaker (lighting design) and Nora Gustuson (costume design).

Tickets, priced $15, are available by calling (212) 868-4444, or by visiting The Theater for the New City is located at 155 First Avenue in Manhattan.
