It's time to take that trip down to Florida! Not literally. Manhattan Theatre Club's The Commons of Pensacola begins performances October 22 at New York City Center — Stage I. Starring Emmy winner Sarah Jessica Parker and Tony winner Blythe Danner, Amanda Peet's play will officially open on November 21. The show is set to run through January 26, 2014.
Directed by Lynne Meadow, 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 (Michael 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, Parker and Stahl-David, the cast of The Commons of Pensacola features Zoe Levin, Ali Marsh 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.
