MCC Theater has assembled a company of stage alums for its New York premiere presentation of Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow Moscow. The Halley Feiffer comedy, directed by frequent collaborator Trip Cullman, will begin June 26 at the company’s Susan & Ronald Frankel Theater, with opening night set for July 18.
The cast will feature Tavi Gevinson (Days of Rage, This Is Our Youth), Tony nominee Steven Boyer (Hand to God), Ako (God Said This), Sas Goldberg (Significant Other), Rebecca Henderson (The Wayside Motor Inn), Greg Hildreth (Frozen), Matthew Jeffers (Light Shining in Buckinghamshire), Gene Jones (Big River), Alfredo Narciso (Time and the Conways), Chris Perfetti (Sons of the Prophet), Ryan Spahn (Summer and Smoke), and Ray Anthony Thomas (Jitney).
A reimagining of Chekhov’s Three Sisters, Feiffer’s long-worded play (a signature trait of many of her works) follows Olga, Masha, and Irina who are not so thrilled with the early 20th century Russian landscape changing around them.
The production is presented in association with Williamstown Theatre Festival, which hosted the play’s world premiere in 2017. The staging also features sets by Mark Wendland, costumes by Paloma Young, lighting by Ben Stanton, sound design by Darron L. West, and casting by Telsey + Co.
