If you're in the mood for a calm and easygoing Florida vacation this fall...we can't help you. But, if you're looking for a good family drama then head to Amanda Peet's The Commons of Pensacola, which opens off-Broadway on November 21. Starring Tony winner Blythe Danner and Emmy winner Sarah Jessica Parker, the Manhattan Theatre Club production will play through January 26, 2014 at New York City Center — Stage I.
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.
