Matthew Perry, Jennifer Morrison, and the Cast of The End of Longing Meet the Press
Perry makes his New York stage debut in his new play.
The cast of MCC Theater's production of Matthew Perry's The End of Longing met the press at their rehearsal studio on April 20. Directed by Lindsay Posner, the show will begin at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on May 18, with opening night set for June 5.
Perry, who makes his New York stage acting and playwriting debut, stars alongside Jennifer Morrison, Quincy Dunn-Baker, and Sue Jean Kim.
The play, which premiered last year at London's Playhouse Theatre on the West End, is described as follows: "An alcoholic, an escort, a self-diagnosed neurotic and a well-intentioned dimwit walk into a bar. Broken and deeply flawed, they find their lives irreversibly entwined no matter how hard they try to break free of one another."
The production will have scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Sarah Laux, lighting design by Ben Stanton, and sound design by Ryan Rumery.
