Take a Ride on Dan Cody's Yacht
A new play inspired by a section of The Great Gatsby comes to Manhattan Theatre Club.
Manhattan Theatre Club has released video from its world premiere of Dan Cody's Yacht, a new play written by Anthony Giardina and directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes. Watch clips from the production, set to open June 6 at New York City Center — Stage I, below.
The cast of Dan Cody's Yacht includes Kristen Bush, Meredith Forlenza, Laura Kai Chen, Rick Holmes, Roxanna Hope Radja, John Kroft, Jordan Lage, and Casey Whyland.
Dan Cody's Yacht is set in a small Boston suburb, where a single schoolteacher is struggling to get by when the wealthy father of one of her students surprises her with a financial proposal that could change her daughter's life. Suddenly, their worlds collide in ways that open up the question: What truly separates the haves and the have-nots?
The creative team is made up of John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Catherine Zuber (costume design), Jen Schriever (lighting design), Fitz Patton (original music and sound design), and Ben Furey (dialect coach).
