Photo Coverage: MTC Opens SPIRIT CONTROL

Manhattan Theatre Club's Lynne Meadow, Artistic Director; Barry Grove, Executive Producer world premiere production of Beau Willimon's SPIRIT CONTROL opened yesterday, October 26 at New York City Center - Stage I. The play, directed by Henry Wishcamper began previews on October 7. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the opening celebration and brings you photo coverage below.

The cast includes Mia Barron Farragut North, The Coast of Utopia, Charles Borland A Man For All Seasons, A Streetcar Named Desire, Aaron Michael Davies Off-Broadway debut, Brian Hutchison From Up Here at MTC, Looped, Maggie Lacey The Orphans Home Cycle, Dividing The Estate, and Jeremy Sisto "Law & Order," "Six Feet Under".

Adam Wyatt Sisto has the perfect family and a perfect record as an air traffic controller. But when the pilot of a small plane suffers a heart attack, Adam must talk a terrified passenger through an emergency landing. What happens next will link him inextricably to a woman he's never met, and set the life he once knew irrevocably adrift. SPIRIT CONTROL is a chilling and mesmerizing look at how we navigate a crisis, and the demons that haunt us long after.
Both Wishcamper, the up-and-coming director who won acclaim for his production of Conor McPherson's Port Authority, and Willimon, the breakout young talent behind the play Farragut North, are making their Manhattan Theatre Club debuts with SPIRIT CONTROL.

SPIRIT CONTROL features scenic design by Robin Vest, costume design by Jenny Mannis, lighting design by Natasha Katz, sound design by Broken Chord, projection design by Aaron Rhyne, original music by Chas Willimon and casting by David Caparelliotis.
