Last night, June 13, Playwrights Horizons opened the World Premiere of RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN, a new play by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Obie Award winner Gina Gionfriddo (Becky Shaw). Previews began May 18.  BroadwayWorld was on hand for the curtain call and post-show celebration and brings you photo coverage below!

Directed by Peter DuBois (Becky Shaw, Sons of the Prophet, Measure for Pleasure, Jack Goes Boating, Artistic Director of Huntington Theatre Company), the play is the final production of the theater company’s 2011/2012 Season. The show will play a limited engagement through June 24.

The cast features five-time Emmy Award nomineeAmy Brenneman(“Private Practice,” “Judging Amy,” “NYPD Blue”),Beth Dixon (Wings, Major Barbara, Vieux Carre),Virginia Kull(Assistance at PH, Man and Boy, Dividing the Estate, Old Acquaintance), Kellie Overbey (The Savannah Disputation and Betty’s Summer Vacation at PH, The Coast of Utopia) and Lee Tergesen (Good Boys and True, The Exonerated, Monster, Wayne’s World, “Oz,” “The Big C”).

After grad school, Catherine (Ms. Brenneman) and Gwen (Ms. Overbey) chose polar opposite paths. Catherine built a career as a rockstar academic, while Gwen built a home with her husband and children. Decades later, unfulfilled in polar opposite ways, each woman covets the other’s life, commencing a dangerous game of musical chairs – the prize being Gwen’s husband (Mr. Tergesen). With searing insight and trademark wit, Gina Gionfriddo’s comedy is an unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of 20th century feminist ideals.
