Photo Flash: The Amoralists' UTILITY Celebrates Opening at Rattlestick

The Amoralists present the world premiere of UTILITY, written by Emily Schwend and directed by Jay Stull. UTILITY runs now through February 20, 2016 in a limited engagement at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, located at 224 Waverly Place between Perry & West 11th Streets in New York City. The show opened on February 1, and BroadwayWorld has photos from the festivities below!

Amber has two jobs, three kids and an eight-year-old's birthday party to plan. The house needs fixing up and her on-again, off-again husband Chris just can't help but make things worse. As Amber struggles to keep things from boiling over, she finds herself a stranger to the person she once was and the person she thought she might be.

The cast includes Alex Grubbs (SeaWife with Naked Angels, Mary-Kate Olsen Is in Love & These Seven Sicknesses at The Flea), Melissa Hurst (One Neck with Atlantic Theatre Co., Dark Ride at Soho Rep, Obie Award-winning play The Houseguests), James Kautz (The Other Thing at Second Stage, The Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side & The Bad and the Better with The Amoralists), and Vanessa Vache (Rantoul and Die, The Bad and the Better & HotelMotel with The Amoralists).

The design team includes Kate Noll (Set Design), Jeanne Travis (Sound Design), Nick Houfek (Lighting Design), Angela Harner (Costume Design) and Zach Serafin (Prop Design). The production team includes Nikki Castle (Production Stage Manager), Anderson Heinz (Associate Producer) and Jeremy Pape (Production Manager).
