Bess Wohl's Continuity Opens at Manhattan Theatre Club
The new play is directed by Rachel Chavkin.
Manhattan Theatre Club opened its world-premiere production of Continuity, written by Bess Wohl and directed by Rachel Chavkin on May 21.
The show stars Max Baker (1984), Jasmine Batchelor (The River), Rosal Colón (Orange Is the New Black), Curran Connor (Pidgeon), Garcia (Tales of the City), Darren Goldstein (The Little Foxes), Alex Hurt (Cardinal), and Megan Ketch (American Gothic). The creative team includes Adam Rigg (scenic design), Brenda Abbandandolo (costume design), Isabella Byrd (lighting design), and Mikaal Sulaiman (sound design).
Continuity is described as follows: "A sheet of ice sits in the desert of New Mexico. A mad eco-terrorist plants a bomb in order to save humankind. A beleaguered film crew tries to get in one last shot before losing the light. In Continuity, storytelling and science collide with hilarious and devastating consequences. The play asks, 'How do we keep going when hope can seem as fictional as a Hollywood ending?' and also, 'What's for lunch?'"
