Primary Stages, in association with Ted Snowdon, launched its 26th season with the New York premiere of SECRETS OF THE TRADE by Jonathan Tolins directed by Matt Shakman last night, August 10. The five-member cast features Amy Aquino as Joanne Lipman, Bill Brochtrup as Bradley, John Glover as Martin Kerner, Mark Nelson as Peter Lipman and Noah Robbins as Andrew Lipman.

Performances began Tuesday, July 27, 2010 for a limited run through Saturday, September 4, 2010 at Primary Stages at 59E59 Theaters.

In show business, it's all about who you know. Or is it? Andy Lipman, a smart, ambitious kid from Long Island dreams of a career on Broadway and hopes that his idol, theater legend Martin Kerner, can give it to him. Will Kerner open Andy's door to success, or will their complicated relationship force him to question a life in the theater?

SECRETS OF THE TRADE received its world premiere in 2008 at the Black Dahlia Theatre in Los Angeles directed by Matt Shakman and featured Amy Aquino, Bill Brochtrup and John Glover and received the 2009 GLAAD Award for Best New Play and was named by The L.A. Times as one of the "10 Best '08."

The creative team includes Mark Worthington (Set), Alejo Vietti (Costumes), Mike Durst (Lights), and John Gromada (Sound). The Production Stage Manager is Sarah Caddell.
