Miles for Mary Begins Rehearsals at Playwrights Horizons
Lila Neugebauer directs the show, created by the Mad Ones, with performances set to begin January 11.
The company of Playwrights Horizons' production of Miles for Mary, a new play by the Mad Ones, began rehearsals yesterday, January 2, ahead of performances set to begin January 11 at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater. The production runs through February 4 under the direction of Lila Neugebauer.
Miles for Mary premiered at the Bushwick Starr in 2016. It is described as follows: "It's 1988 and the planning committee for Garrison High School's ninth annual Miles For Mary Telethon is fired up and ready to go. Across subcommittee sessions in the Phys Ed teachers' lounge, The Mad Ones assemble an analog elegy to the camcorder 1980s, Girls Track and Field, and the consecrated American High School."
The entire company of the Bushwick Starr run, made up of Marc Bovino, Joe Curnutte, Michael Dalto, Stephanie Wright Thompson, Amy Staats, and Stacey Yen, return for the off-Broadway engagement. The production features set design by Amy Rubin, costume design by Ásta Hostetter, lighting design by Mike Inwood, and sound design by Stowe Nelson.
