Scott Organ’s Phoenix celebrates its opening night off-Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theatre on August 7. The play, under the direction of Jennifer DeLia, stars Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Julia Stiles and James Wirt.
When Bruce (Wirt) and Sue (Stiles) meet four weeks after an uncharacteristic one-night-stand, Sue has this to say to him: one, I had a great time with you that night and two, let's never see each other again. Thus begins a 4,000-mile journey well beyond the confines of their carefully structured worlds. Bruce is fueled by an overwhelming but undefined compulsion to join her in Phoenix. Sue is reluctantly charmed by his persistence, but steadfast in her resolve to keep him at bay.
The one-act dark romantic comedy will run through August 23.
