Tickets are now on sale for the world premiere of The Tutors, a scholarly new comedy by Erica Lipez. Directed by Thomas Kail, the Second Stage Theatre production stars Luis Ozawa Changchien, Matt Dellapina, Aubrey Dollar, Keith Nobbs and Chris Perfetti. The Tutors begins previews May 22, with an official opening night set for June 5 at off-Broadway’s McGinn/Cazale Theatre.
No one dreams of being a tutor: just ask Heidi (Dollar), Toby (Nobbs) and Joe (Dellapina). While catering to the offspring of the New York elite has forced them to confront the anticlimax of adulthood, these roommates are not ready to give up on their social networking startup—just yet. When Heidi’s online editing begins to invade her subconscious and a student crosses the line, all three friends might be in over their heads. A funny, heartfelt look at day jobs versus dream jobs and the people we count on to remind us of the difference.
The Tutors features scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Jessica Jahn, lighting design by Betsy Adams, sound design by Jill DuBoff and fight direction by Thomas Schall.
