The Studio at Stage II

Stage II

The Studio at Stage II affords MTC the opportunity to present thrilling new work in a way which invites audiences into the artistic process. MTC’s producing history in Stage II includes early works from many playwrights who, over time and with many productions across MTC’s campus of venues, became part of the fabric of MTC. The Studio at Stage II will be a place for artists to work and for audiences with an appetite for risk, adventure, and bold theatricality to meet that work.

Bold new work.

MTC’s The Studio at Stage II presents Simon Stephens’ HEISENBERG.

“Is this the strangest thing that two people have ever done in the history of the world?”

Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, Clare spots Alex, a much older man, and plants a kiss on his neck. This electric encounter thrusts these two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game. Directed by Drama Desk Award winner Mark Brokaw (The LyonsHow I Learned to Drive), HEISENBERG brings to blazing, theatrical life the uncertain and often comical sparring match that is human connection.

Internationally renowned for THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME, visionary playwright Simon Stephens returns to the New York stage with this sharply original world premiere starring Tony® and Emmy® winner Mary-Louise Parker (Proof, “Weeds”) and Emmy nominee Kenneth Welsh (Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de LuneThe Aviator).

Heisenberg was commissioned by Manhattan Theatre Club.

Bold new audiences.

In order to ensure that tickets to BY THE WATER are affordable to the widest possible, most diverse audiences, MTC is pricing all tickets at $30 during the first five weeks of the run.
