Dear Ninc members,
This just in about our keynote speaker, Theresa Rebeck.
The Manhattan Theatre Club Broadway production of Theresa Rebeck's Mauritius opened,
Thursday, October 4 at the Biltmore Theatre (261 West 47th Street). Mauritius is
the first production of MTC's 2007-2008 season.
Directed by Tony Award winner Doug
Hughes (Doubt, Inherit The Wind), the production stars
Academy Award winner F.
Murray Abraham (Sterling), Tony Award nominee Dylan
Baker (Philip), Emmy Award winner Bobby
Cannavale (Dennis), Tony Award winner Katie
Finneran (Mary), and Tony Award nominee Alison
a gripping new play from the acclaimed author of such hits as The Scene, Bad
Dates and Omnium Gatherum, for which Rebeck and her co-author
were finalists for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
"Jackie (Pill) and Mary (Finneran) are half-sisters whose mother's
death leaves them in possession of a rare stamp collection. But which sister
actually owns the stamps? Which of three men (Abraham, Baker, and Cannavale)
can be trusted with their sale? Tightly woven and ever-surprising, this sinister
comedy marks Theresa Rebeck's Broadway debut," explain press notes.
