Zachary Quinto is no stranger to the theater stage (he was last seen in the Broadway revival of The Glass Menagerie), but now he's set to lead the cast of the New York premiere of Smokefall, by Noah Haidle and directed by Anne Kauffman. The Off-Broadway play was a hit when it was produced at Chicago's Theatre. For more, read the synopsis of the play:
"Magical realism collides with manic vaudeville in a family drama unlike any you've ever seen. The Twins swap philosophy while awaiting their birth, Beauty eats dirt and doesn't speak, Father is about to drive away and never return, and a man named Footnote acts as our guide. Whipping from astonishing tenderness to profound humor and back again, this wholly original play uncovers the extraordinary family connections we all stretch and warp across the years but can never quite break."
Previews of the MCC production of Smokefall (at the Lucille Lortel Theatre) begin February 4, 2016, and the opening night is set for February 22. The show will run through March 13.
