VIDEO: Zachary Quinto Is A Footnote And A Fetus In Noah Haidle's SMOKEFALL


"In the first act I play a character called 'Footnote,'" explains Zachary Quinto of his newest stage assignment, Noah Haidle's Smokefall. "In the second act I play a character called 'Fetus #2.'"

Two seasons after making an impressive Broadway debut in THE GLASS MENAGERIE, Quinto heads downtown to the Lortel for MCC THEATER's New York premiere of Haidle's drama in a production directed by Anne Kauffman (THE NETHER). He'll be joined by rising star Julia Garner, film and television star Robin Tunney and NYC theater veterans Jon DeVries and Brian Hutchison.

SMOKEFALL had its world premiere, smash-hit run at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, where the Chicago Tribune called the play "a haunting, not-to-be-missed new family drama." In SMOKEFALL, magical realism collides with manic vaudeville. The Twins swap philosophy while awaiting their birth, Beauty eats dirt and doesn't speak, Father is about to drive away and never return, and Footnote acts as our guide.

SMOKEFALL will play the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street) with previews beginning February 4, 2016 and an opening night set for February 22. It is scheduled through March 13. Single tickets will go on sale January 5, 2016, but advanced tickets are currently available via subscription packages at
