Aaron Tveit and More Welcome Oscar Nominee Lucas Hedges to the Stage in Yen
The company of Anna Jordan's Yen celebrated its MCC Theater opening night on January 31 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. The production is directed by Trip Cullman.
The company includes Lucas Hedges (Manchester by the Sea), Ari Graynor (The Performers), Stefania LaVie Owen (CW's The Carrie Diaries), and Justice Smith (Netflix's The Get Down). Jack DiFalco serves as understudy.
Yen is described as follows: "Bobbie (Smith) and Hench (Hedges) are home alone. Days are filled by streaming porn, playing video games, watching the world go by. Their mom (Graynor) rarely visits these days, and it's chaos when she does. But when animal-loving neighbor Jenny (Owen) takes an interest in their dog Taliban, the boys discover a world far beyond what they know."
