Synopsis

Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, Georgie spots Alex, a much older man, and plants a kiss on his neck. This electric encounter thrusts these two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game. Directed by Drama Desk Award winner Mark Brokaw (The LyonsHow I Learned to Drive), Heisenberg brings to blazing, theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is human connection.

Internationally renowned for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, visionary playwright Simon Stephens returns to the New York stage with this sharply original world premiere starring Denis Arndt (The Night AliveBasic Instinct) and Tony® and Emmy® winner Mary-Louise Parker (Proof, “Weeds”).

Running Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes, with no intermission

August Wilson's Jitney

Previews Begin: Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Opening Night: Thursday, January 19, 2017

Synopsis

Only one of the plays in two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson’s masterful The American Century Cycle has never been seen on Broadway  – until now. Set in the early 1970s, this richly textured piece follows a group of men trying to eke out a living by driving unlicensed cabs, or jitneys. When the city threatens to board up the business and the boss’ son returns from prison, tempers flare, potent secrets are revealed and the fragile threads binding these people together may come undone at last. MTC has a long history of co-producing works by this legendary playwright: King Hedley II, Seven Guitars and The Piano Lesson, and is proud to produce this Broadway debut. Directing is Ruben Santiago-Hudson, one of Wilson’s finest interpreters.

Lead support for August Wilson’s Jitney has been provided by MTC’s Producing Fund Partner, Andrew Martin-Weber. Special thanks to The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust for supporting Manhattan Theatre Club.

Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes

Previews Begin: Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Opening Night: Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Synopsis

Two extraordinary actresses return to Manhattan Theatre Club in a vibrant new production of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes. In a thrilling coup, MTC will present three-time Tony Award® nominee Laura Linney (Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen) and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole, Wit), who will alternate playing the roles of Regina and Birdie in Lillian Hellman’s legendary play about greed and ambition. Set in Alabama in 1900, The Little Foxes follows Regina Giddens and her ruthless clan, including her sister-in-law Birdie, as they clash in often brutal ways in an effort to strike the deal of their lives. Far from a sentimental look at a bygone era, the play has a surprisingly timely resonance with important issues facing our country today. Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Rabbit Hole) will direct.

Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon are both scheduled to appear in every performance, however they will alternate in the roles of “Regina” and “Birdie.” Read more and see a calendar here.

Additional support for Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes is provided by the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.

“A RAUCOUS, IMMENSELY MOVING COMEDY with JAZZY COMIC PERFORMANCES from an EXCELLENT CAST. Qui Nguyen is clearly a playwright with an inventive mind.” -Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
“⋆⋆⋆⋆! Go See MTC’s SEXY, SASSY AND EXUBERANTLY YOUTHFUL VIETGONE!" -Time Out New York
“A WILDLY FUN, IMAGINATIVE PRODUCTION, WONDERFULLY STAGED AND HILARIOUS!” -Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
“⋆⋆⋆⋆! HIGH-ENERGY TRIUMPH!” -The Guardian

Synopsis

A modern twist on the All-American love story, Qui Nguyen’s (She Kills Monsters) new play Vietgone pulses with contemporary energy. It’s the classic story of boy meets girl – except this boy and girl are refugees from the Vietnam War newly settled in a relocation camp inside Middle America. Borrowing elements from the world of up-to-the-minute popular culture to recreate the playwright’s own parents’ meeting, Vietgone ranges from hilarity to heart-wrenching drama. Nguyen and director May Adrales (Luce) skip through time and around the globe to present a fresh theatrical take on a moving account of one real family’s history.

Running Time: 2 hours, 20 minutes, with 1 intermission

Vietgone is produced in association with South Coast Repertory.

Linda

Previews Begin: Friday, February 3, 2017

Opening Night: Thursday, February 23, 2017

Synopsis

Linda Wilde has it all. She’s an award-winning senior executive as well as a busy wife and mother. But when she pitches a revolutionary concept that could change the way the world looks at women of a certain age, she finds herself fighting for her own relevance as every part of her carefully considered life starts to show cracks. MTC is proud to present this timely, moving and fiercely funny new play by Penelope Skinner (last season’s acclaimed The Ruins of Civilization) in the American premiere directed by MTC Artistic Director Lynne Meadow. The play was celebrated in London in its run at the Royal Court Theatre.

Lead support for Linda has been provided by MTC’s Producing Fund Partner, Ned J. Lustbader.

Cost Of Living

Previews Begin: Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Opening Night: Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Synopsis

Cost of Living is the story of four very different people, in four very different circumstances, each trying to get by. Eddie, an unemployed truck driver, reunites with his ex-wife Ani after she suffers a devastating accident. John, a brilliant and witty doctoral student, hires over-worked Jess, a caregiver. As their lives intersect, Majok’s play delves into the chasm between abundance and need and explores the space where bodies — abled and disabled — meet each other. Obie Award-winner Jo Bonney directs.

Cost of Living is presented in association with Williamstown Theatre Festival. Lead support for Cost of Living is provided by the Ernst C. Stiefel Foundation.

Synopsis

In the New Mexico desert, a down-on-her-luck folk singer (Deirdre O’Connell) takes a job at a giant online retailer’s shipping center. Her young manager struggles to connect with his girlfriend newly relocated from New York. And a drifter living at a local campground dangerously links them all.
