The Playwrights Realm will to bring back their "1to5 Ticket Drive" initiative during preview performances for the World Premiere of MY MAÑANA COMES by Elizabeth Irwin. Tickets for the first preview start at $1 and increase by $1 for each preview performance that week (August 26 - $1; August 27 - $2; August 28 - $3; August 29 - $4; August 30 - $5). Tickets for performances on August 31, September 2 and September 3 are $15. Tickets range in price from $25 to $35 for all regular performances (September 4 thru 20). Student rush tickets are available for $10 for all performances from August 31 thru September 20.
About the ticket initiative Artistic Director Katherine Kovner said, "We created the $1 to $5 ticket drive because we want to share our playwrights' work with as many people as possible. Price shouldn't determine the audience. If you want to see it, we want you there!
MY MAÑANA COMES is directed by Chay Yew (Artistic Director for Victory Gardens Theater, Chicago). The production runs August 26 through September 20, 2014 with a September 4 opening at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater (416 W. 42nd Street, NYC).
The cast includes Jason Bowen (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Huntington Theatre) as Peter, José Joaquín Peréz (Intar's Adoration of the Old Woman by José Rivera) as Jorge, Brian Quijada (Where Did We Sit on the Bus?, Terra Nova Collective) as Whalid and Reza Salazar (Por Gusto, Repertorio Español) as Pepe.
Just beyond the elegant dining room of an Upper East Side restaurant, four busboys angle for shifts, pray for tips, and cling to dreams of life beyond their dingy back-of-house grind. Expertly juggling delicate entrees, fussy customers and beer-swilling line cooks, the young men face off with management and each other. As tensions reach a boiling point, how far will each of them go to see their own mañana come?
The design team includes Wilson Chin (Scenic Design), Moria Sine Clinton (Costume Design), Nicole Pearce (Lighting Design) and Mikhail Fiksel (Sound Design). Production Core is the Production Supervisor. Winnie Y. Lok is the Production Stage Manager and Catherine Lynch is the Assistant Stage Manager.
MY MAÑANA COMES performances are Monday through Saturday at 7:30pm with special matinee performances on Sunday, August 31 at 5pm and Saturday, September 13 at 2pm. There is no performance Monday, September 1.
MY MAÑANA COMES is made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
