News   PHOTO CALL: Fifty Words Opens Off-Broadway
MCC Theatre's world premiere of Michael Weller's Fifty Words opened Off-Broadway Oct. 1.

Austin Pendleton directs Norbert Leo Butz and Elizabeth Marvel currently in the work playing the Lucille Lortel Theatre. "Something's gone very wrong behind the idyllic façade of Jan and Adam's Brooklyn brownstone," read press notes for the two-character piece. "At 9:10 PM, they're reveling in the freedom of having waved off their young son, Greg, to a neighborhood sleepover. By 9:15 PM, they're both in tears. By 9:25 PM, things are way past tears."

MCC Theatre's artistic directors Robert LuPone and Bernard Telsey hosted the evening at Telsey + Company along with associate artistic director William Cantler and executive director Blake West.

Here is a look at the opening-night party:
