The Manhattan Theatre Club’s new Broadway production of MASTER CLASS by Terrence McNally, directed by Stephen Wadsworth, begins rehearsals today. MASTER CLASS will begin previews on Tuesday, June 14 and open Thursday, July 7 at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street).

The limited engagement will star Olivier Award nominee Sierra Boggess (Sharon), Clinton Brandhagen (Stagehand), Jeremy Cohen (Manny), Tony and Emmy Award winner Tyne Daly (Maria Callas), Drama Desk Award winner Alexandra Silber (Sophie), and Garrett Sorenson (Tony).

Terrence McNally’s play about Maria Callas (Tyne Daly) takes us to one of her famous master classes, where, late in her own career, she dares the next generation to make the same sacrifices and rise to the same heights that made her the most celebrated, the most reviled and the most controversial singer of her time.

The creative team for MASTER CLASS includes Thomas Lynch (scenic design), Martin Pakledinaz (costume design), David Lander (lighting design), and Jon Gottlieb (sound design).

Tickets for MASTER CLASS are available by calling Telecharge at 212-239-6200, online by visiting www.Telecharge.com, or by visiting the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre Box Office (261 West 47th Street). Ticket prices are $57 – $116.
