Incognito

“NY TIMES CRITICS’ PICK! INGENIOUS, REMARKABLE AND TANTALIZING.” – THE NEW YORK TIMES

“★★★★! FASCINATING AND MOVING. INCOGNITO IS AT THE TOP OF ITS CLASS.” THE GUARDIAN 

American Premiere by Nick Payne
Directed by Doug Hughes
Featuring Geneva CarrCharlie CoxHeather Lind, Morgan Spector

Four actors play a combined 21 characters within Incognito’s three interwoven stories. A pathologist steals the brain of Albert Einstein; a neuropsychologist embarks on her first romance with another woman; a seizure patient forgets everything but how much he loves his girlfriend. Incognito braids these mysterious stories into one breathtaking whole that asks whether memory and identity are nothing but illusions.

Nick Payne, the acclaimed writer who brought you the sold-out Broadway sensation Constellations, returns to Manhattan Theatre Club with Incognito, an “astonishing and original” (The Telegraph) American premiere play.

Directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (DoubtOutside MullingarThe City of Conversation), Incognito takes us into the last uncharted realm—the mind.

Running time: 85 minutes with no intermission.

Production support for Incognito is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation as part of the MTC/Sloan Science Theatre Initiative.

Vietgone

New York premiere by Qui Nguyen
Directed by May Adrales

Previews Begin: Tuesday, October 4, 2016
Opening Night: Tuesday, October 25, 2016

A modern twist on the All-American love story, Qui Nguyen’s (She Kills Monsters) new play Vietgone pulses with contemporary energy. It’s the classic story of boy meets girl – except this boy and girl are refugees from the Vietnam War newly settled in a relocation camp inside Middle America. Borrowing elements from the world of up-to-the-minute popular culture to recreate the playwright’s own parents’ meeting, Vietgone ranges from hilarity to heart-wrenching drama. Nguyen and director May Adrales (Luce at LCT3) skip through time and around the globe to present a fresh theatrical take on a moving account of one real family’s history.

Vietgone is produced in association with South Coast Repertory.

Casting, creative team, and additional listings information for Vietgone will be announced in the coming weeks.

August Wilson’s Jitney

Broadway premiere directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson

Previews Begin: Wednesday, December 28, 2016
Opening Night: Thursday, January 19, 2017

Only one of two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson’s plays in the author’s masterful The American Century Cycle has never been seen on Broadway – until now. Set in the early 1970s, this richly textured piece follows a group of men trying to eke out a living by driving unlicensed cabs, or jitneys. When the city threatens to board up the business and the boss’ son returns from prison, tempers flare, potent secrets are revealed and the fragile threads binding these people together may come undone at last. MTC has a long history of co-producing works by this legendary playwright: King Hedley II, Seven Guitars and The Piano Lesson, and is proud to produce this Broadway debut. Directing is Ruben Santiago-Hudson, one of Wilson’s finest interpreters.

Special thanks to The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust for supporting Manhattan Theatre Club.

Cost Of Living

New York premiere by Martyna Majok
Directed by Jo Bonney

Previews Begin: Tuesday, May 16, 2017
Opening Night: Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Cost of Living is the story of four very different people, in four very different circumstances, each trying to get by. Eddie, an unemployed truck driver, reunites with his ex-wife Ani after she suffers a devastating accident. John, a brilliant and witty doctoral student, hires over-worked Jess, a caregiver. As their lives intersect, Majok’s play delves into the chasm between abundance and need and explores the space where bodies — abled and disabled — meet each other. Obie Award-winner Jo Bonney directs.

Cost of Living is presented in association with Williamstown Theatre Festival, where it will have its World Premiere this summer on the Nikos Stage from June 29 to July 10, 2016.

Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes

Directed by Daniel Sullivan
With Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon

Previews Begin: Wednesday, March 29, 2017
Opening Night: Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Two extraordinary actresses return to Manhattan Theatre Club in a vibrant new production of Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes. In a thrilling coup, MTC will present three-time Tony Award® nominee Laura Linney (Time Stands Still, Sight Unseen) and Tony winner Cynthia Nixon (Rabbit Hole, Wit), who will alternate playing the roles of Regina and Birdie in Lillian Hellman’s legendary play about greed and ambition. Set in Alabama in 1900, The Little Foxes follows Regina Giddens and her ruthless clan, including her sister-in-law Birdie, as they clash in often brutal ways in an effort to strike the deal of their lives. Far from a sentimental look at a bygone era, the play has a surprisingly timely resonance with important issues facing our country today. Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Proof, Rabbit Hole) will direct.

Additional support for Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes is provided by the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation. Photo credits: Cynthia Nixon photo by Maarten de Boer; Laura Linney photo by Nino Muñoz

Linda

By Penelope Skinner
Directed by Lynne Meadow

Previews Begin: Friday, February 3, 2017
Opening Night: Thursday, February 23, 2017

Linda Wilde has it all. She’s an award-winning senior executive as well as a busy wife and mother. But when she pitches a revolutionary concept that could change the way the world looks at women of a certain age, she finds herself fighting for her own relevance as every part of her carefully considered life starts to show cracks. MTC is proud to present this timely, moving and fiercely funny new play by Penelope Skinner (last season’s acclaimed The Ruins of Civilization) in the American premiere directed by MTC Artistic Director Lynne Meadow. The play was celebrated in London in its run at the Royal Court Theatre.

Fulfillment Center

World Premiere By Abe Koogler
Directed by Daniel Aukin
Featuring Deirdre O’Connell

Previews Begins: June 6, 2017
Opening Night: June 20, 2017

In the New Mexico desert, a down-on-her-luck folk singer (Deirdre O’Connell) takes a job at a giant online retailer’s shipping center. Her young manager struggles to connect with his girlfriend newly relocated from New York. And a drifter living at a local campground dangerously links them all. Raw, surprising, and funny, this world premiere from the fast-rising author of Kill Floor is about four lonely lives coming together in the search for fulfillment.
