Manhattan Theatre Club’s new Broadway production of Terrence McNally’s MASTER CLASS, directed by Stephen Wadsworth, begins previews tomorrow at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). The limited engagement will open Thursday, July 7.

MASTER CLASS stars Olivier Award nominee Sierra Boggess (Sharon Graham), Clinton Brandhagen (Stagehand), Jeremy Cohen (Manny), Tony and Emmy Award winner Tyne Daly (Maria Callas), Drama Desk Award winner Alexandra Silber (Sophie De Palma), and Garrett Sorenson (Anthony Candolino).

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), Jon Gottlieb (sound design), and Paul Huntley (wig design).
