Page 73 and Soho Rep team up to present the world premiere of Dan LeFranc's new play SIXTY MILES TO SILVER LAKE directed by Anne Kauffman (Obie Award-winning director of Adam Bock's THE THUGS at Soho Rep). Previews begin January 15th prior to an official press opening of January 22nd at Soho Rep (46 Walker Street). Following Page 73's critically acclaimed productions of Jason Grote's 1001 and Quiara Alegr?a Hudes' ELLIOT, A SOLIDER'S FUGUE (Pulitzer Prize Finalist) and fresh from Soho Rep's extended and acclaimed production of Sarah Kane's BLASTED comes this co-produced world premiere. A moving car. A father and son. The father drives. The son's face is pressed against the rolled up window. A lifetime can pass in the sixty miles between a boy's soccer practice and his father's new apartment. In this world premiere production, playwright Dan LeFranc and Obie Award-winning director Anne Kauffman explore the dynamic - both hilarious and devastating - of a father and son trying to make sense of their relationship after a messy divorce. A haunted and fractured father-son tale, SIXTY MILES TO SILVER LAKE looks at the violent desire to erase the indelible marks that a father can leave on his only child and at the time and space that sometimes exists between the pleather seats of a father's used car.

The show, starring the singular Taylor Mac as Shen Tei, is directed by Lear deBessonet and features original live music by 'indie rock vaudevillians' (SPIN) César Alvarez and The Lisps.

Vietgone by Qui Nguyen is the Vietnamese-American playwright's own creation story-a telling of his parents' 1975 refugee camp romance in a "geek theater" spectacle that's at turns affecting, sage, raucous, and fantastical. A screenwriter for Marvel Studios and founder of Obie Award-winning company Vampire Cowboys, Nguyen's work champions representation and diversity on stage while dripping with pop culture nods, contemporary music, and action-adventure narrative. The production pairs this Studio-commissioned playwright with director and Studio Cabinet member Natsu Onoda Power. Drawing on Vietgone's comic book aesthetics, Studio's Stage 4 is transformed into a garage concert with a live band and original funk-rock-punk-n-roll score, giving audiences a front row seat to this anything-but-typical story of boy meets girl.
