“Never more so than now, MTC is making beautiful theatre, producing the hottest plays in town.”

—The New York Observer

The Royal Family

Final performance was December 13th, 2009

By George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber
Directed by Doug Hughes
with Ana Gasteyer, John Glover, Rosemary Harris, Jan Maxwell, Larry Pine, Tony Roberts, Reg Rogers

In this thinly veiled parody of the Barrymore family circa 1927, a flamboyant theatrical family must cope with the dumbfounding fact that one of them wishes to marry someone outside of show business.


Final performance was December 13th, 2009

Written and performed by Lynn Redgrave
Directed by Joseph Hardy

with Lynn Redgrave

Tony Award® and Academy Award® nominee Lynn Redgrave stars in her new play inspired by her need to create a life for her maternal grandmother, a woman she barely knew. NIGHTINGALE is a play about a promising woman stymied by society and all but erased by history, a touching personal tribute and a resounding song for all those people whose voices we’ve lost, or never known.

In the tradition of Shakespeare for My Father and The Mandrake Root comes Lynn Redgrave’s latest portrait of her legendary family.


Final performance was March 28th, 2010

By Bill Cain
Directed by Garry Hynes

with Remy Auberjonois, Michael Countryman, David Furr, John Pankow, Charlotte Parry, David Pittu

Bill Cain’s play set in 1606 England begins when King James’ right hand man commissions William Shakespeare to write a new play about the Gunpowder Plot, a recent failed attempt to blow up Parliament and the Monarchy. EQUIVOCATION is a bold new look at the greatest playwright ever in a drama whose contemporary parallels are unmistakable and whose laughter is abundant – a work of startling revelations and vibrant theatricality.

THAT FACE is a powerful and darkly comic look at an affluent family in freefall. Mia has been suspended from boarding school. Her brother, Henry, has dropped out altogether. And Martha, their mum, manipulates them all. Money can no longer fix their problems — now it’s up to them.

This Olivier Award-nominated play from Britain’s fastest-rising young playwright premieres in New York with the director of last season’s acclaimed Blasted.
