'Mauritius' Stamps into The Biltmore, Opens Oct. 4


The Manhattan Theatre Club Broadway production of Theresa Rebeck's Mauritius will open tomorrow, Thursday, October 4 at the Biltmore Theatre (261 West 47th Street).

Directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt, Inherit The Wind), the production stars Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham (Sterling), Tony Award nominee Dylan Baker (Philip), Emmy Award winner Bobby Cannavale (Dennis), Tony Award winner Katie Finneran (Mary), and Tony Award nominee Alison Pill (Jackie).

Mauritius is the first production of MTC's 2007-2008 season. The production began previews on Thursday, September 13.

Mauritius is a gripping new play from the acclaimed author of such hits as The Scene, Bad Dates and Omnium Gatherum, for which Rebeck and her co-author were finalists for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

"Jackie (Pill) and Mary (Finneran) are half-sisters whose mother's death leaves them in possession of a rare stamp collection. But which sister actually owns the stamps? Which of three men (Abraham, Baker, and Cannavale) can be trusted with their sale? Tightly woven and ever-surprising, this sinister comedy marks Theresa Rebeck's Broadway debut," explain press notes.

The creative team for Mauritius includes: John Lee Beatty (Scenic Design), Catherine Zuber (Costume Design), Paul Gallo (Lighting Design), and David Van Tieghem (Original Music and Sound Design), Rick Sordelet (Fight Director), and David Caparelliotis (Casting Director).
