‚Äč

Manhattan Theatre Club (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director; Barry Grove, Executive Producer) is proud to present Samson Raphaelson's ACCENT ON YOUTH to be directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan (Rabbit Hole, Sight Unseen, Proof). BroadwayWorld.com brings you these video highlights from the production which features Lisa Banes (High Society, Arcadia), Rosie Benton(Saturn Returns, Les Liaisons Dangereuses), David Furr (Cymbeline, Evening), Mary Catherine Garrison (Top Girls, Rabbit Hole), Byron Jennings (Is He Dead?, Sight Unseen), Tony nominee Charles Kimbrough and Tony and Emmy winner David Hyde Pierce

ACCENT ON YOUTH will begin previews on Tuesday, April 7, 2009 for a Wednesday, April 29, 2009 opening in a limited engagement at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street).

ACCENT ON YOUTH is a rollicking salute to love's possibilities, both on stage and off. Successful playwright Steven Gaye (Pierce) is about to abandon his latest script, when his young secretary (Garrison) offers him new inspiration. With her as his muse, he stages the show on Broadway, only to learn, to his dismay, that the show's young leading man (Furr) is being inspired by her too.

The creative team for ACCENT ON YOUTH includes John Lee Beatty(scenic design), Jane Greenwood (costume design), Brian MacDevitt(lighting design), and Obadiah Eaves (original music and sound design).

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Lynne Meadow and Executive Producer Barry Grove, MTC has become one of the country's most prominent and prestigious theatre companies. MTC productions have earned a total of 16 Tony Awards and five Pulitzer Prizes, an accomplishment unparalleled by a New York theatrical institution. Renowned MTC productions include Top Girls; From Up Here; Come Back, Little Sheba; The Receptionist; LoveMusik; Blackbird; Translations; Shining City; Rabbit Hole; Doubt; Proof; The Tale of the Allergist's Wife; Kimberly Akimbo; Love! Valour! Compassion!; Sylvia; Four Dogs and a Bone; Putting It Together; Lips Together, Teeth Apart; Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune; Crimes of the Heart; and Ain't Misbehavin'.

This season, MTC's Broadway stage was renamed the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). The landmarked theatre has been the institution's home on Broadway since 2003 and was rehabilitated by MTC following a two-year, $35 million capital campaign. In addition, MTC operates two theatres at New York City Center (131 West 55th Street), its Off-Broadway home since 1984.
