Rebeck's 'Mauritius' Begins MTC Previews 9/13


The Manhattan Theatre Club production of Theresa Rebeck's Mauritius will begin performances tonight, September 13 at the Biltmore Theatre (261 West 47th Street) for a Thursday, October 4 opening night. The production is directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt).

The production stars: Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus), Tony Award nominee Dylan Baker (Happiness), Emmy Award winner Bobby Cannavale ("Will & Grace"), Tony Award winner Katie Finneran (Noises Off), and Tony Award nominee Alison Pill (Blackbird).

"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.
