Manhattan Theatre Club's production of John Patrick Shanley's The Portuguese Kid has released the first photos from its world premiere staging at New York City Center - Stage I. Check out photos from the production in the gallery below.

Shanley directs a cast led by Jason Alexander, Aimee Carrero, Pico Alexander, Sherie Rene Scott, and Mary Testa. Opening night is set for October 24.

The Portuguese Kid is described as follows: "In Providence, Rhode Island, habitually widowed Atalanta (Scott) pays a visit to her second-rate lawyer, Barry Dragonetti (Alexander). Intending to settle her latest husband's affairs, this larger-than-life Greek tightwad quickly becomes a nightmare for her cheesy, self-aggrandizing attorney. Add Barry's impossible Croatian mother (Testa), a dash of current politics, and a couple of opportunistic young lovers, and you have in hand a recipe for comic combustion."

The Portuguese Kid was developed at Vassar and New York Stage and Film's Powerhouse Theater season in 2016.
