MCC Theater's production of J.C. Lee's Relevance is set to begin previews at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on February 2 ahead of opening night on February 20. See photos of the production, directed by Liesl Tommy, in the gallery below.
The four-member company is made up of Jayne Houdyshell (A Doll's House, Part 2), Pascale Armand (Eclipsed), Molly Camp (The Heiress), and Richard Masur (Transparent).
In Relevance, Theresa Hanneck is a celebrated author and veteran feminist warrior, and Msemaji Ukweli is a promising young writer who is quickly becoming the leading cultural critic on race, class, and gender for a new generation. When a heated exchange between the two women goes viral, Theresa finds herself ill-equipped to manage her message in the era of 140-character tweets — especially against a rival whose time may have come.
The production will have scenic design by Clint Ramos, costume design by Jacob A. Climer, lighting design by Jiyoun Chang, sound design by Broken Chord, and projection design by Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew.
