Photo Coverage: Shining City Opening Night

‚Äč

The American premiere of Conor McPherson's Shining City, presented by Manhattan Theatre Club, opened on Broadway at the Biltmore Theatre (261 West 47th Street) on Tuesday, May 9; previews began on Thursday, April 20. An after-party followed at the Bryant Park Grill.

The show, which is directed by Robert Falls, stars Tony Award-winner Brían F. O'Byrne (Ian), Oliver Platt (John), Martha Plimpton (Neasa), and Peter Scanavino (Laurence). "Originally produced at London's Royal Court Theater to critical acclaim, Shining City is set in Dublin, where a guilt-ridden man (Platt) reaches out to a therapist (O'Byrne) after seeing the ghost of his recently deceased wife. Wrestling with his own demons, the therapist can only do so much to help. Routine visits between the two men quickly become a gripping struggle to survive, changing both of them for the rest of their lives," state press notes.

Tickets are available at Telecharge at 212-239-6200 and at telecharge.com and at the Biltmore box office (261 West 47th Street). Visit www.manhattantheatreclub.com for more information.
