The cast and crew of Roundabout Theatre Company's New York premiere of Anna Ziegler's The Last Match took a break between sets to meet with the press in advance of performances beginning September 28 at the Laura Pels Theatre. Opening night for the production, directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch, is set for October 24.
The play is described as follows: "It's the semifinals of the U.S. Open, and two tennis greats are facing off in the match of their lives. Tim Porter, the aging all-American favorite, wants to prove to the world, his wife, and himself that he's still a champion. Hot-headed rising star Sergei Sergeyev struggles to believe he truly deserves to beat his lifelong hero."
The cast features Wilson Bethel (Tim), Alex Mickiewicz (Sergei), Natalia Payne (Galina), and Zoë Winters (Mallory). The creative team includes Tim Mackabee (scenic design), Montana Blanco (costume design), Bradley King (lighting design), and Bray Poor (sound design).
