Obsession Fuels World Premiere, Anon., at Atlantic Stage 2

News   Obsession Fuels World Premiere, Anon., at Atlantic Stage 2
A large cast of 14 populates the intimate Atlantic Stage 2 space with the world premiere of Kate Robin's Anon., opening Jan. 31 after previews from Jan. 24.

Directed by Melissa Kievman, Anon. continues to Feb. 18. The 99-seat Atlantic Stage 2 — operated by Atlantic Theater Company — is located at 330 W. 16th Street in Manhattan.

According to Atlantic notes, "Anon. tells the searing and irreverent tale about the hazy territory where sex, relationships, and addiction overlap, and raises the question, 'When do peccadilloes become obsessions?' Trip and Allison meet in a chance encounter when he hires her as a therapist for his morose, misbehaved cat. Little do they realize in their first meeting that they'll end up thrust into an intense relationship in which their desire to save each other and the need to save themselves may become mutually exclusive choices."


Boasting a cast of 14, Anon. features Caroline Aaron ("Crimes and Misdemeanors"), Remy Auberjonois (Atlantic's The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow), Susan Blackwell (title of show), Shannon Burkett (The Ride Down Mt. Morgan), Bill Buell (Urinetown), Saidah Arrika Ekulona (Well), Dana Eskelson (After Ashley), Michelle Federer (Wicked), Katy Grenfell (Hairspray), Linda Marie Larson (Jackie: An American Life), Jenny Maguire (Wonder of the World), Kate Nowlin (All This Intimacy), Danielle Skraastad (The Pain and the Itch) and Anna Wilson (The Donkey Show).

The design team includes scenic designer Chris Muller, costume designer Anne Kenney, lighting designer Tyler Micoleau and sound designer Eric Shim. Playwright Kate Robin penned the plays Intrigue With Faye (MCC), The Light Outside (The Flea), Swimming in March (The Market Theater, winner IRNE Best Play of 2001 award), Bride Stripped Bare (ThreadWaxing Space). Television and film credits include "Six Feet Under" (writer/supervising producer) and "Coming Soon." She is currently working on a play commission for South Coast Rep, and developing a pilot for CBS.

Anon. plays Tuesday through Friday at 7:30 PM, Saturday at 2:30 PM and 7:30 PM and Sundays at 2:30 PM. All tickets are $35 and are available by calling Telecharge at (212) 239-6200 (or Telecharge.com).
