Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Cast of Log Cabin Meet the Press
Jordan Harrison's new play is directed by Pam MacKinnon.
The cast of Jordan Harrison's Log Cabin met the press on May 8. Directed by Pam MacKinnon, the Playwrights Horizons production begins previews June 1 with an opening night set for June 25. The limited engagement is currently scheduled to play through July 15.
As previously announced, five-time Emmy nominee Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family) will star alongside Phillip James Brannon (Bootycandy), Cindy Cheung (Iowa), Ian Harvie (Transparent), Talene Monahon (Tell Hector I Miss Him), and Dolly Wells (The Whirligig).
The production will feature scenic design by Tony Award nominee and Obie Award winner Allen Moyer, costume design by Lortel Award winner Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Obie Award winner Russell H. Champa, and sound design by Lortel Award winner Leah Gelpe.
The story is described as follows: "It's a faraway age of hope and inclusivity; in other words, it's 2015. When a tight-knit circle of married gays and lesbians — comfy in the new mainstream — see themselves through the eyes of their rakish transgender pal (Harvie), it's clear that the march toward progress is anything but unified. With stinging satire and acute compassion, Jordan Harrison's pointed comedy charts the breakdown of empathy that happens when we think our rights are secure, revealing conservative hearts where you'd least expect."
