Sex with Strangers, which officially opened at Second Stage’s Tony Kiser Theatre on July 30, will extend its off-Broadway run. Laura Eason’s steamy drama, which stars Emmy winner Anna Gunn and Tony nominee Billy Magnussen, will now play through August 31; it had initially been set to shutter on August 24.
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 is directed by David Schwimmer.
