Second Stage is about to get salacious. Laura Eason’s Sex with Strangers begins off-Broadway performances on July 8. The drama, directed by David Schwimmer, stars Emmy winner Anna Gunn and Tony nominee Billy Magnussen.
In Sex With Strangers, sex blogger Ethan (Magnussen) tracks down his idol, a gifted but obscure novelist named Olivia (Gunn). Their attraction turns to sex as they inch closer to getting what they want. The drama challenges the dark side of ambition and the near impossibility of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away.
Sex With Strangers will open officially on July 30 at the Tony Kiser Theatre.
