Photo Coverage: Zoe Kazan's WE LIVE HERE Celebrates Opening Night at MTC

Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere of WE LIVE HERE by Zoe Kazan, directed by Sam Gold, opened last night, October 12 at New York City Center - Stage I.. Due to popular demand, the production has been extended through Sunday, November 6. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the opening night party and brings you photo coverage below!

WE LIVE HERE features Mark Blum (After the Revolution, Twelve Angry Men), Jessica Collins (AMC's "Rubicon," Pygmalion), Betty Gilpin (MTC's That Face, The Language Archive), Amy Irving (The Coast of Utopia, Adam), Oscar Isaac (Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, MTC's Beauty of the Father), and Jeremy Shamos (Clybourne Park, MTC's Reckless).

Allie Bateman's (Jessica Collins) wedding to Sandy (Jeremy Shamos) is Sunday. When Dinah (Betty Gilpin), her precocious younger sister, returns to their parents' (Mark Blum and Amy Irving) home for the festivities, she brings more than anyone expected: a new boyfriend (Oscar Isaac), whose hidden history resurrects passions and painful memories for the whole family. Over one emotionally charged weekend, the Batemans must acknowledge and accept loss to gain hope for regeneration. Zoe Kazan, one of New York's most acclaimed young actors, returns to Manhattan Theatre Club for her New York playwriting debut with this world premiere MTC-commissioned play - an incisive and beautifully rendered portrait of a contemporary family coming together through grief and celebration.

The creative team for WE LIVE HERE includes: John Lee Beatty (scenic design), David Zinn (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), Ryan Rumery (original music & sound design), and Thomas Schall (fight direction).

WE LIVE HERE was commissioned by MTC through the Bank of America New American Play Program and is the recipient of a 2011 Edgerton New American Play Award.
