‘The Other Place’ Announces Extension!

The Other Place - Laurie Metcalf as 'Juliana Smithton' and Daniel Stern as 'Ian Smithton'Manhattan Theatre Club’s Broadway premiere of The Other Place, a new play by Sharr White, directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello starring Laurie Metcalf, Daniel Stern, Zoe Perry, and John Schiappa has been extended by one week due to popular demand, MTC announced today. Tickets for the limited eofficially opens tonight, January 10. The limited engagement playing at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre are now on sale through Sunday, March 3.

To accommodate the extension for The Other Place, MTC is shifting the dates for the upcoming world premiere of The Assembled Parties, the new play by Richard Greenberg, directed by Lynne Meadow. The Assembled Parties will now start previews on Thursday, March 21. As previously announced, the opening will remain Wednesday, April 17 at the Friedman Theatre.

Three-time Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Laurie Metcalf (“Roseanne,” November, Long Day’s Journey into Night in London’s West End, and a founding ensemble member of Steppenwolf Theatre Company) stars in MTC’s Broadway premiere production of The Other Place, a riveting new thriller by fast-rising playwright Sharr White and directed by two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Other Desert Cities, Wicked, Love! Valour! Compassion!).

Metcalf gives a “dazzling, must-be-seen performance” (Variety) as Juliana Smithton, a successful neurologist whose life seems to be coming unhinged. Her husband (Daniel Stern) has filed for divorce, her daughter (Zoe Perry) has eloped with a much older man (John Schiappa) and her own health is in jeopardy. But in this brilliantly crafted work, nothing is as it seems. Piece by piece, a mystery unfolds as fact blurs with fiction, past collides with present and the elusive truth about Juliana boils to the surface.

The Other Place had its world premiere at MCC Theater (Robert LuPone, Bernard Telsey, William Cantler, Artistic Directors; Blake West, Executive Director), opening on March 28, 2011 where it extended due to popular demand. The Other Place was nominated for two Outer Critics Circle Awards, a Drama League Award, and three Lucille Lortel Awards. Metcalf won an Obie Award and a Lucille Lortel Award for her performance in the production.

The creative team for the production includes Eugene Lee & Edward Pierce (scenic design), David Zinn (costume design), Justin Townsend (lighting design), Fitz Patton (original music, sound design), William Cusick (projection design), and David Caparelliotis (casting).
