The cast of The Manhattan Theatre Club's Broadway-bound COLLECTED STORIES met with the press last week. Rehearsals for the production began on March 3, in preparation for a Wednesday, April 27 opening night at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. The production will start previews on Friday, April 9. COLLECTED STORIES stars Tony Award winner Linda Lavin (THE TALE OF THE ALLERGIST'S WIFE, THE NEW CENTURY) and Golden Globe nominee Sarah Paulson ("Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," THE GLASS MENAGERIE on Broadway).
COLLECTED STORIES is by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies (TIME STANDS STILL, DINNER WITH FRIENDS), and directed by Lynne Meadow (THE TALE OF THE ALLERGIST'S WIFE, THE LOMAN FAMILY PICNIC).
This acclaimed drama chronicles the relationship between two female writers - a celebrated New York author (Lavin) and her young protégé (Paulson). As their fascinating story evolves, and the line between fact and fiction blurs, the twists and turns of this complex relationship weave a play that's as smart and witty as it is powerful.
Lavin and Meadow reunite for this Broadway premiere after working together on MTC's hit production of The Tale of the Allergist's Wife.
The design team for COLLECTED STORIES includes Santo Loquasto (Scenic Design), Jane Greenwood (Costume Design), Natasha Katz (Lighting Design), and Obadiah Eaves (Sound Design).
