All the Natalie Portmans extends limited run at MCC Theater
The New York premiere of All the Natalie Portmans is now scheduled to play its final performance on March 29, 2020.
Due to popular demand, MCC Theater has announced a 2-week extension for its current New York premiere production of All the Natalie Portmans, written by C.A. Johnson and directed by Kate Whoriskey.
The new comedy began previews at the Susan & Ronald Frankel Theater within the Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space on February 6 and is set for an official opening on February 24. The limited engagement will now run through March 29, 2020 (instead of March 15).
Synopsis: "All The Natalie Portmans is a fantastical new coming-of-age comedy. Keyonna is sixteen years old, extremely close with her older brother Samuel, and dreams of a better tomorrow. When brother and sister find themselves on the brink of eviction, their tenuous life on the edge of poverty is forever changed by a few hundred dollars, a pretty girl, and a famous Hollywood actress. Too smart, "too gay", and too lonely to fit in, Keyonna escapes by writing to her muse (or muses) Natalie Portman in her most iconic roles. When All The Natalie Portmans start talking back to her, Keyonna finally has to finally face her own off-screen drama in this imaginative new play about the beauty of life even if we can't see the stars."
As previously reported, the Off-Broadway cast includes Joshua Boone (as Samuel), Tony Award nominee Montego Glover (as Ovetta), Elise Kibler (as Natalie Portman), Renika Williams (as Chantel), and Kara Young (as Keyonna).
The creative team features scenic design by Donyale Werle, costume design by Jennifer Moeller, lighting design by Stacey Derosier, and sound design by Sinan Refik Zafa.
All the Natalie Portmans Tickets are available now for performances through March 29, 2020.
