Well begins performances tonight at 1st Stage.

Tony Award-winning playwright Lisa Kron's play follows Lisa, a stand-in for Kron, and her relationship with her mother, Ann. Lisa takes the audience on a journey to discover why some people are sick and some people are well and the lengths to which we will go to understand each other.

Well features Laura Artesi, Audrey Bertaux, Edward Christian, Marquis D. Gibson, Lolita Marie, and Elizabeth Pierotti. Michael Bloom directs.

The design team includes Luciana Stecconi (scenic design), Danielle Preston (costume design), Catherine Girardi (lighting design), Kenny Neal (sound design), Kay Rzasa and Deb Crerie (properties design), and fight choreography by Patrick Kilpatrick.

Performances continue through April 23.
