Manhattan Theatre Club' s New York premiere of THE WHIPPING MAN, the acclaimed new play by Matthew Lopez, directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes, began previews at MTC at New York City Center - Stage I 131 West 55th Street.

The limited engagement of THE WHIPPING MAN opens Tuesday, February 1 with tickets now on sale through Sunday, March 20.
Three men tied by faith, bound by secrets, at a crossroads-a Jewish Confederate soldier Wilkison who has returned from battle, and two former slaves Braugher and Holland, who were raised as Jews in his household. As the three men reunite to celebrate Passover, they uncover a tangle of secrets that might cost each man his freedom.
The creative team for THE WHIPPING MAN includes: John Lee Beatty scenic design, Catherine Zuber costume design, Ben Stanton lighting design, Jill BC DuBoff sound design, Tom Watson hair & wig design, and J. David Brimmer fight direction.
