The cast of Primary Stages' world premiere of Kate Fodor's Rx met the press at an event at the company's rehearsal studios on January 5. Ethan McSweeny directs the production, which will play 59E59 Theaters, January 24-March 3, with an opening on February 7.
In the play, a woman joins the clinical trial for a new drug targeting workplace depression. Things get messy, however, when she falls in love with her doctor, who himself is trying to enroll in a drug trial targeting heartbreak.
The cast features Michael Bakkensen, Marylouise Burke, Marin Hinkle, Stephen Kunken, Paul Niebanck, and Elizabeth Rich. Also on hand at the press event were Primary Stages' artistic director Andrew Leynse and managing director Elliot Fox.
