Stage and screen star Al Pacino and veteran film and television writer Norman Lear attended performances of the Off-Broadway production of Victoria E. Calderon's Manipulation at the Cherry Lane Theater this past weekend.

The production is helmed by Will Pomerantz, with the cast including Brendan McMahon, Saundra Santiago, Marina Squerciati, Jeremy Stiles Holm, Robert Bogue, Rafi Silver, Gabriel Furman and John-Patrick Driscoll.

The play centers on a woman coping with her husband's flagrant infidelities, her mother's suggestions that she have an affair herself, and her psychoanalyst's self-serving advice.

The production features scenic design by Bill Stabile, lighting design by Kirk Bookman, costume design by Alejo Vietti, sound design by Jeremy Lee, technical supervision by Jay Janicki, and fight direction by Rick Sordelet.
