COST OF LIVING Enters Final Two Weeks of Performances

Cost of Living stars Gregg Mozgala, Katy Sullivan, Kara Young, and David Zayas.

Manhattan Theatre Club's Broadway premiere of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Cost of Living is in its final two weeks of performances. Written by Martyna Majok (Sanctuary City, Ironbound) and directed by Obie Award winner Jo Bonney, the production will end its extended run at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street) on Sunday, November 6.

Cost of Living's cast features acclaimed original stars Gregg Mozgala (Lucille Lortel Award winner for his performance) and Katy Sullivan (Theatre World Award winner for her performance), who reunite for the Broadway production; Tony Award nominee Kara Young (Clyde's, The New Englanders at MTC); and David Zayas ("Dexter," Anna in the Tropics).

Cost of Living opened on October 3.

Winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize, Martyna Majok's powerhouse play receives its Broadway premiere after a celebrated run at MTC's Stage I. This insightful, intriguing work is about the forces that bring people together, the complexity of caring and being cared for, and the ways we all need each other in this world. Kara Young and David Zayas join acclaimed original stars Gregg Mozgala and Katy Sullivan in this production, again directed by Obie Award winner Jo Bonney.

Cost of Living's creative team includes Wilson Chin (scenic design), Jessica Pabst (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), Rob Kaplowitz (sound design), Mikaal Sulaiman (original music), Thomas Schall (movement consultant), The Telsey Office (original casting), Caparelliotis Casting & Kelly Gillespie (casting), and David Lurie-Perret (Production Stage Manager).
