Photo Flash: First Look at Cherry Lane's MANIPULATION

MANIPULATION, a world-premiere play by Victoria E. Calderon about one woman's struggle for freedom and self-discovery, is set to open today, Tuesday, June 28 at Off-Broadway's Cherry Lane Theatre (38 Commerce Street) in Manhattan. Will Pomerantz directs. Check out photos of the production below!

In MANIPULATION: Cristina seems to have it all - money, position, privilege. So why is she beginning to feel she has no control over her life, mind or body? Drawing on the best traditions of Latin American literature and its potent "magic realism," as well as a little-known Biblical tale, playwright Victoria E. Calderon conjures a provocative and unexpected world where the relationships we all cling to - mother and child, husband and wife - become a swirl of games, deception and surprise. Is Cristina willing to fight for her authenticity and a real place in this world?

The production stars Robert Bogue, Gabriel Furman, Jeremy Stiles Holm, Brendan McMahon, Saundra Santiago, Rafi Silver and Marina Squerciati
