Playwrights Realm's My Mañana Comes Announces Casting

The world premiere production paints a portrait of life on the Upper East Side.

Playwright Elizabeth Irwin will premiere her new play, My Mañana Comes, with the Playwrights Realm next month.

Casting has been announced for the Playwrights Realm's upcoming world premiere production of Elizabeth Irwin's My Mañana Comes.

Directed by Chay Yew, My Mañana Comes tells the story of four busboys at an Upper East Side restaurant who dream about life beyond the dingy back-of-house grind. As they continue to face off against management and one another, tensions reach a boiling point. The cast includes Jason Bowen (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom) as Peter, Jose Joaquin Perez (Adoration of the Old Woman) as Jorge, Brian Quijada (Where Did We Sit on the Bus) as Whalid, and Reza Salazar (Por Gusto) as Pepe.

The creative team features Wilson Chin (scenic design), Moria Sine Clinton (costume design), Nicole Pearce (lighting design), and Mikhail Fiksel (sound design).

Performances will begin August 26 in advance of a September 4 opening and will run through September 20 at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater. Tickets are now on sale, with the "1to5 Ticket Drive" in effect throughout the first week of preview performances (August 26-30). Tickets for the first preview will start at $1 and increase by $1 for each preview performance that week. Tickets for August 31, September 2, and September 3 are $15, with student rush tickets available for $10 for all performances from August 31-September 20.
