Manhattan Theatre Club's presentation of Amanda Peet's new play The Commons of Pensacola has extended its off-Broadway run at New York City Center — Stage I through February 9, due to popular demand. The show was initially scheduled to run through January 26. Directed by Lynne Meadow, the play stars Emmy winner Sarah Jessica Parker and Tony winner Blythe Danner.
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) pays Judith a visit to the one-bedroom condo Judith now occupies in Pensacola, Florida, everyone’s motives are called into question.
In addition to Parker and Danner, the cast of The Commons of Pensacola features Michael Stahl-David, Zoe Levin, Ali Marsh and Nilaja Sun.
The production includes scenic design by Santo Loquasto, costume design by Tom Broecker, lighting design by Jason Lyons and sound design by Jill BC Du Boff.
