Tony Award and four-time Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce (Accent on Youth, Curtains, “Frasier”) brings his signature wit back to the MTC stage as Paul Barrow, an obsessive book editor on a major deadline. With an assistant who’s been camping in the office (Michael Chernus), a famous author (Rosie Perez) threatening to bail on him and an intern (Jessica DiGiovanni) who is no help at all, Paul’s just about had it! But when his fiery daughter (Colby Minifie) shows up and lambasts him in Russian, Paul faces a glaring personal error that can’t be corrected with red ink. Leigh Silverman (Well, In the Wake, From Up Here) returns to MTC to direct this funny and poignant new play about how hard it can be to communicate… in any language.
