Photo Coverage: Opening Night at Entertaining Mr. Sloane

Entertaining Mr. Sloane, which began previews on February 17th, opened officially on Thursday, March 16th at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46 Street). The show, which stars Alec Baldwin, will play a limited engagement through Sunday, May 21, 2006.

"Joe Orton's classic dark comedy Entertaining Mr. Sloane centers on a handsome stranger with a secret, his libidinous landlady, her gender-bending brother and geriatric father. Kath's (Maxwell) language may be prim but her intentions are blatant when she picks up Mr. Sloane (Carmack) and takes him in as a lodger. Attractive, mischievous and dangerous, Sloane eventually has Kath, her brother Ed (Baldwin) and their father Kemp (Easton) eating out of his hand as they all compete for his favors. Together they play out a sexual tug of war, sparking a series of murderously funny events in this survival of the fittest power struggle where they will resort to anything to get what they want," state press notes.

Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300, online at or at the Laura Pels Theatre Box Office (111 West 46th St.). Ticket prices range from $62.50 - $72.50. Entertaining Mr. Sloane will play Tuesday through Saturday evening at 7:30 p.m. with Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m.
