A Perfect Future to close early

The Off-Broadway production of David Hay's A Perfect Future will close early, ending its run at the Cherry Lane Theatre on 6 Mar 2011.

A Perfect Future opened at the Cherry Lane Theatre on 17 Feb 2011, following previews from 4 Feb, and was originally booking through to 2 May 2011.

The show opened to negative reviews: Too contrived to score many compelling points (NY Times); None of it is remotely credible (Back Stage); Insufferably smug characters screams bogus-bogus-bogus." (Variety).

Directed by Tony Award-nominee Wilson Milam, the four-member cast features Donna Bullock as 'Natalie,' Scott Drummond as 'Mark,' Daniel Oreskes as 'Elliot' and Michael T. Weiss as John.

At its core, A Perfect Future explores the question of whether people can be married and truly love each other when their political persuasions are diametrically opposed.

Set in 2005, the action takes place in the apartment of two well heeled New Yorkers, 'Natalie' and 'John,' who are hosting a dinner for 'Elliot,' a friend from their days as college radicals. Also invited to the party is 'Mark,' a straight-laced young man from John's risk management firm. Over the course of a raucous evening filled with wine and merriment, their basic belief systems are upended, as the four must come to terms with each other's true politics and behavior.
