Second Stage Theater's world-premiere production of Greg Pierce's new play Cardinal opened on January 30 at the Tony Kiser Theater. Directed by Kate Whoriskey, the show is set to run through February 25. Check out photos from the opening night in the gallery below.

The company includes Becky Ann Baker (Girls), Anna Chlumsky (Veep), Alex Hurt (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Adam Pally (Happy Endings), Stephen Park (Aubergine), and Eugene Young (Geek!). The production has scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Jennifer Moeller, lighting design by Amith Chandrashaker, and sound design by Leah Gelpe.

Cardinal is described as follows: "Paint it red. So begins Lydia's wild idea to invigorate her Rust Belt town. But when a whip-smart entrepreneur co-opts her scheme, a precarious rivalry is born. A battle for the town's soul ensues, causing its obsessive mayor, its defiant matriarch, and the rest of its residents to question who they are and where they're headed."
