THE OTHER PLACE
Broadway premiere by Sharr White
Directed by Joe Mantello
with Laurie Metcalf, Zoe Perry, Bill Pullman and John Schiappa
Three-time Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Laurie Metcalf (“Roseanne,” “The Big Bang Theory,” November) stars in MTC’s Broadway-premiere production of THE OTHER PLACE, a riveting new psychological thriller by fast-rising playwright Sharr White and directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Other Desert Cities, Wicked, Love! Valour! Compassion!).
Metcalf gives a “dazzling, must-be-seen performance” (Variety) as Juliana Smithton, a successful neurologist whose life seems to be coming unhinged. Her husband has filed for divorce, her daughter has eloped with a much older man and her own health is in jeopardy. But in this brilliantly crafted work, nothing is as it seems. Piece by piece, a mystery unfolds as fact blurs with fiction, past collides with present and the elusive truth about Juliana boils to the surface.
