Tickets are now on sale for the world premiere of 17 Orchard Point at The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row. Preview performances begin April 25 prior to a May 4 opening.
As previously announced, Tony Award winner Michele Pawk will star alongside the play’s writer, Stephanie DiMaggio. 17 Orchard Point is co-written by Anton Dudley and directed by Stella Powell-Jones.
The new dark comedy follows two generations of women battling to claim their home and history. Lydia (Pawk) lives by her motto, "leave your baggage at the door, or it will end up on your face." A decade after fleeing Cleveland for one long night out in Vegas, leaving the family's apartment building under the management of her daughter Vera (DiMaggio), Lydia returns to find a lifetime of "baggage” waiting for her inside.
Pawk received a Tony Award for Hollywood Arms. Her additional Broadway credits include Hairspray, Mamma Mia, Chicago and Cabaret. DiMaggio appeared on Broadway in A Free Man Of Color, in addition to numerous off-Broadway credits.
