Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) have announced that tickets are now on sale for the Manhattan Theater Club world premiere of Morning Sun, written by Tony Award winner Simon Stephens, directed by the Drama winner Desk Award Lila Neugebauer, and featuring Tony Award winner Blair Brown, four-time Emmy Award winner Edie Falco, and Tony Award nominee Marin Ireland.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.nycitycenter.org, by calling 212-581-1212 or by visiting the New York City Center Box Office (131 West 55th Street). We anticipate high call volumes and long phone wait times, so we recommend purchasing your tickets online if possible.
Morning Sun will begin showings Tuesday, October 12, 2021 and open Wednesday, November 3, 2021 at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street).
Blair Brown (Copenhagen, “Orange Is the New Black”), Edie Falco (“The Sopranos”, Frankie and Johnny…) and Marin Ireland (Reasons to Be Pretty) form an all-star trio in this deeply felt, new beautifully imagined piece by Tony winner Simon Stephens (Heisenberg, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night). 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), and Daniel Kluger (music). Laura Smith is the production manager.
Morning Sun was commissioned by MTC as part of the Bank of America New Play program.
Morning Sun lasts approximately 90 minutes without intermission.
