Photo Coverage: 'Mauritius' Opening Night Curtain & Party

The Manhattan Theatre Club celebrated opening its 2007-2008 season on Thursday, October 4 with the opening performance of the Manhattan Theatre Club Broadway production of Theresa Rebeck's Mauritius at the Biltmore Theatre (261 West 47th Street). The after party was held at Bryant Park Grill.

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 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.

Tickets to Mauritius are available by calling Telecharge.com at (212) 239-6200, (800) 432-7250 outside the NY metro area, online at Telecharge.com, and at the Biltmore Theatre box office (261 West 47th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue). Tickets range in price from $46.50-91.50. Student rush tickets are available the day of the performance at the Biltmore Theatre box office for $26.50.

Performances are: Tuesday through Saturday at 8 PM, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM.  For details visit www.ManhattanTheatreClub.com
