FREEZE FRAME: THE WAY WE GET BY's Amanda Seyfried & Thomas Sadoski Meet the Press

Second Stage Theatre welcomes film star Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables, Dear John, Mamma Mia!, upcoming Ted 2 and Pan) in her off-Broadway debut opposite Thomas Sadoski(The Newsroom, Wild, upcoming in NBC's The Slap) in the world premiere production of NEIL LaBUTE's drama, The Way We Get By. Directed by Tony nominee LEIGH SILVERMAN, the production officially opens on May 20, 2015 at Second Stage Theatre, 305 West 43rd Street.

This two-character play will star Seyfried and Sadoski as Beth and Doug: two people who have no problems getting dates with their partners of choice. What they do have, however, is a very awkward encounter after spending one hot night together following a drunken wedding reception they attend. They wake up to a blurry morning where the rules of attraction, sex and society are waiting for them before their first cup of coffee, leading them to ponder how much they really know about each other and how much they really care about what other people think. A world premiere from one of our most provocative storytellers, The Way We Get By is a play about love and lust and the whole damn thing.

THE WAY WE GET BY features set design by Neil Patel, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Matthew Frey, and sound design by Bart Fasbender. Casting by Telsey + Co., Will Cantler.

All performances are staged at Second Stage's Tony Kiser Theatre, 305 West 43rd Street (just west of Eighth Avenue).
