Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space
511 West 52nd Street New York, NY 10019

SEARED is a new fit-for-foodies comedy by critically-acclaimed playwright THERESA REBECK (BERNHARDT/HAMLET) directed by Tony nominee MORITZ VON STUELPNAGEL (MCC's HAND TO GOD). Brilliant, hot-headed chef Harry scores a mention in a food magazine with his signature scallops, and his business partner Mike finally sees profits within reach. The only problem is Harry refuses to recreate his masterpiece for the masses. Mix in a shrewd restaurant consultant and a waiter with dreams of his own and it all goes to hell in this hilarious and insightful new play that asks us to consider where art ends and commerce begins. You've never seen (or smelled) a production quite like this. Audiences will be up close to the action of SEARED's working kitchen onstage in our intimate and flexible space.

BWW Review: Raul Esparza and Krysta Rodriguez Clash in Theresa Rebeck's Art Vs. Commerce Comedy, SEARED
by Michael Dale - October 29, 2019

It's a bit of a longshot, perhaps, but given the organization's tendency to honor less-than-traditional terpsichorean achievements, don't be too shocked if Raul Esparza is named as one of this season's Chita Rivera Award nominees as Outstanding Male Dancer in an Off-Broadway show.
