Photo Flash: First Look at ALL THE DAYS at McCarter Theatre Center
If it's not one thing, it's your mother. McCarter Theatre Center presents the World Premiere of Sharyn Rothstein's ALL THE DAYS, a blend of drama and comedy about the hectic history among eccentric mother, her grown daughter, and extended family. With works described as "a force of nature" by The New York Times, Rothstein represents a powerful new voice in the American Theater. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
ALL THE DAYS follows Ruth (Caroline Aaron) from Long Island, whose deteriorating health leads her to stay with her grown daughter Miranda (Stephanie Janssen), who is trying to make a new life for herself in Philadelphia all while planning her son's bar mitzvah. As if that wasn't enough - Ruth's sister, ex-husband, a new love interest, and Miranda's boyfriend all find their way through the front door. With all the family in one place, it's anyone's guess if they'll all stay in one piece. Sharyn Rothstein's uniquely heartfelt view of the modern Jewish-American family holds a mirror up to all who know the pain and pleasure of families dealing with life, with loss...and with each other.
ALL THE DAYS is directed by McCarter Theatre Center's Artistic Director and Resident Playwright Emily Mann, and boasts a design team of McCarter veterans including scenic designer Dan Ostling (Antony & Cleopatra, Ken Ludwig's Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery); costume designer Jess Goldstein (Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap, Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol); lighting designer Jeff Croiter (Five Mile Lake, Mrs. Packard); and sound designer Mark Bennett (Proof, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike).
