Open A New Window

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 Pill (Jackie).

Mauritius is 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.

Tickets to Mauritius are available by calling at (212) 239-6200, (800) 432-7250 outside the NY metro area, online at, and at the Biltmore Theatre box office (261  West 47th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue). Tickets range in price from $46.50-91.50.
