In Greenwich Village about a generation ago, the city is alive. Joni Mitchell sings, friends and lovers come and go, and regulars change at the White Horse Tavern. As 50 years pass, a woman’s life is revealed in all its complexity, mystery and possibility in this thrilling world premiere about mothers and daughters, beginnings and endings in New York City. The direction is Lila Neugebauer (The Waverly Gallery).

The creative team includes Dots (stage design), Kaye Voyce (costume design), Lap Chi Chu (lighting design), Lee Kinney and Daniel Kluger (sound design), Daniel Kluger (original music) and Tom Watson (hair and wig design). ). Laura Smith is the production manager.

Morning Sun was commissioned by MTC as part of the Bank of America New Play program.
