FREEZE FRAME: Zachary Quinto and the Company of MCC's SMOKEFALL Meet the Press


MCC THEATER will soon present Zachary Quinto in the New York premiere of Smokefall, by Noah Haidle and directed by Anne Kauffman, who directed The Nether for MCC last season to great acclaim. Quinto will also be joined by rising star Julia Garner, currently starring opposite Lily Tomlin in the Oscar-buzzed independent film Grandma; film and television star Robin Tunney and NYC theater veterans Jon DeVries and Brian Hutchison. The company just met the press and you can check out a photo preview from the big day below. Check back later for full coverage!

Smokefall will play the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street) with previews beginning February 4, 2016 and an opening night set for February 22. It is scheduled through March 13. Single tickets will go on saleJanuary 5, 2016, but advanced tickets are currently available via subscription packages

Smokefall had its world premiere, smash-hit run at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, where the Chicago Tribune called the play "a haunting, not-to-be-missed new family drama." In Smokefall, magical realism collides with manic vaudeville in a family drama unlike any you've ever seen. The Twins swap philosophy while awaiting their birth, Beauty eats dirt and doesn't speak, Father is about to drive away and never return, and a man named Footnote acts as our guide. Whipping from astonishing tenderness to profound humor and back again, this wholly original play uncovers the extraordinary family connections we all stretch and warp across the years but can never quite break. Smokefall marks the MCC debut of playwright Haidle.
