The Way We Get By extends limited run to 21 June 2015


Second Stage Theatre has announced a one week extension to the limited engagement of Neil LaBute's The Way We Get By, which began previews on 28 April 2015 at the Tony Kiser Theatre, and officially opened on 19 May. It will now play its final performance on 21 June 2015.

The cast of The Way We Get By includes Amanda Seyfried, who is making her off-Broadway debut as Beth opposite Thomas Sadoski as Doug.

Synopsis: ""Meet Beth and Doug: two people who have no problems getting dates with their partners of choice. What they do have, however, is a very awkward encounter after spending one hot night together following a drunken wedding reception they attend. They wake up to a blurry morning where the rules of attraction, sex and society are waiting for them before their first cup of coffee, which leads them to ponder how much they really know about each other and how much they really care about what other people think."

Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman directs the production which also features set designs by Neil Patel, lighting design by Matthew Frey and sound design by Jill BC Du Boff.

Amanda Seyfried's film credits include 'Mamma Mia', 'Les Miserables' and 'Mean Girls'. She will star in the upcoming films 'Ted 2' and 'While We’re Young' alongside Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts.

The Way We Get By will mark Thomas Sadoski's sixth collaboration with Second Stage Theatre, following 'Becky Shaw', 'Reckless', 'Gemini', 'All This Intimacy' and 'This Is Our Youth'. On television, Sadoski stars in HBO’s 'The Newsroom'.
