Tickets are now on sale for Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere production of Amanda Peet's The Commons of Pensacola. Directed by Lynne Meadow, the play stars Tony winner Blythe Danner and Emmy winner Sarah Jessica Parker. Performances begin October 22 at off-Broadway’s New York City Center Stage I, with opening night set for November 21.
The Commons of Pensacola centers on Judith (Danner), a woman who has been divested of her assets and forced to leave her luxurious New York life after her husband’s Wall Street scam became headline news. When her daughter Becca (Parker) and Becca’s filmmaker boyfriend (Stahl-David) pay Judith a visit to the one-bedroom condo Judith now occupies in Pensacola, Florida, everyone’s motives are called into question. How will past and present circumstances inform how this family moves into the future?
In addition to Danner and Parker, the cast of The Commons of Pensacola includes Zoe Levin, Ali Marsh, Michael Stahl-David and Nilaja Sun.
The creative team for The Commons of Pensacola includes scenic design by Santo Loquasto, costume design by Tom Broecker, lighting design by Jason Lyons and sound design by Jill BC Du Boff.
