Matthew Perry's Play The End of Longing Extends Off-Broadway Run
Jennifer Morrison costars with Perry in the MCC Theater production.
MCC Theater has announced an extension for The End of Longing, a new play written by and starring Matthew Perry in his New York City playwriting and stage acting debuts. Previously scheduled for a limited run through June 24, the play will now run through July 1 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Now in previews, the production officially opens on 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 has scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Sarah Laux, lighting design by Ben Stanton, and sound design by Ryan Rumery.
