Manhattan Theatre Club's CLOSE UP SPACE Opens Tonight, Dec 19 at New York City Center

Manhattan Theatre Club

MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB’S WORLD PREMIERE OF

CLOSE UP SPACE

OPENS TONIGHT, MONDAY, DECEMBER 19

AT NEW YORK CITY CENTER - STAGE 1

Manhattan Theatre Club’s world premiere of CLOSE UP SPACE, the new play by Molly Smith Metzler, directed by Leigh Silverman opens tonight, Monday, December 19 at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street).

CLOSE UP SPACE features Obie Award winner Michael Chernus (The Aliens, In The Wake), Jessica DiGiovanni (Off-Broadway debut), Colby Minifie (The Pillowman, Landscape of the Body), Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Rosie Perez (Fearless, The Ritz) and Tony Award and four-time Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce (“Frasier,” Curtains).

Tony Award and four-time Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce brings his signature wit back to the MTC stage as Paul Barrow, an obsessive book editor on a major deadline. With an assistant (Chernus) who's been camping in the office, a famous author (Perez) threatening to bail on him and an intern (DiGiovanni) who is no help at all, Paul's just about had it! But when his fiery daughter (Minifie) shows up and lambasts him in Russian, Paul faces a glaring personal error that can't be corrected with red ink. Leigh Silverman (Well, From Up Here, Chinglish) returns to MTC to direct this funny and poignant new play about how hard it can be to communicate… in any language.

The creative team for CLOSE UP SPACE includes: Todd Rosenthal (scenic design), Emily Rebholz (costume design), Matt Frey (lighting design), Jill BC Du Boff (sound design), and Paul Huntley (hair design).
