Today is Wednesday, October 10, marking the official opening night performance for Christopher Innvar, Mary McCann, Mary Beth Peil, Jordan Lage, Madeleine Martin, Gareth Saxe, et al in Simon Stephens' tale of Harper Regan, presented by Off-Broadway's Atlantic Theater Company. The tale of a woman who walks away from her home and family began previews September 20 at the Linda Gross Theater in Chelsea, and runs through October 28.

Here's how ATC characterizes the new work: "One strange evening, Harper Regan (McCann) decides to walk away from her husband (Saxe), her daughter (Martin) and her home. She tells no one where she's going or whether she's ever coming back. She tosses family, history and fate straight up in the air, and it looks like she might be gone for good. In Simon Stephens' acclaimed play, which premiered in 2008 at the U.K.'s National Theatre, we are folded into an absorbing story about a woman who explores the limits of loyalty, morality, and the bonds of family."

I just read the NYT review (link posted below) and I really want to see this. But it only runs through 10/28? Yikes, that's an awfully small window. Hope I can pull it off.
