Beau Willimon's BREATHING TIME Begins Performances Tomorrow Off-Broadway

BREATHING TIME is directed by Aaron Rossini and officially opens on Thursday, March 27, 2014 at Teatro IATI (64 E. 4th Street, New York, NY) and runs through Sunday, April 13, 2014.

A brother and a sister, a husband and a wife, a day in New York that sends shock waves through their lives. With humor and heartbreak, Beau Willimon's BREATHING TIME is an intimate drama about the arbitrary but indispensable connections between us all.
Jack and Mike are bankers - one reckless and larger than life, the other responsible and grounded. When we meet them, their typical morning ritual proves to be anything but routine. Three weeks later, Jack's sister and Mike's wife meet for dinner - two strangers connected by only a photograph. Denise is a struggling dancer trying to make ends-meet. Julie is a suburban mother doing her best to raise a young son. Fate has brought this quartet together - but they refuse to let it tear them apart.
BREATHING TIME stars Whitney Conkling, Craig Wesley Divino, Lee Dolson, John Racioppo, Shannon Marie Sullivan and Molly Thomas and features scenic design by Tristan Jeffers, lighting design by John Eckert, sound design by Chad Raines, and costume design by Izzy Fields.
