Boy's Life: Second Stage Theatre announces full cast

Second Stage Theatre will kick off its 30th Anniversary Season with a new production of Howard Korder's comedy, Boy's Life, directed by Michael Greif, opening at the Second Stage Theatre on 20 Oct 2008, following previews from 2 Oct, and playing through to 9 Nov 2008.

This 20th Anniversary production of Boy's Life will feature Jason Biggs, Rhys Coiro, and Peter Scanavino as 'The Boys' as well as Dan Colman, Michelle Federer, Betty Gilpin, Paloma Guzman, Laura-leigh, and Stephanie March.

Twenty years after its acclaimed world premiere, Howard Korder's Boy's Life will receive its first major New York remounting with this production. A Pulitzer Prize finalist in 1988, Boy's Life is a stinging and candid look at three college buddies making their way in the big city. As they maneuver between life and sex in New York, Korder lacerates the prolonged adolescence that often takes the place of modern manhood.

Boy's Life will feature scenic design by Mark Wendland, costume design by Clint Ramos, lighting design by Kevin Adams, and sound design by Fitz Patton.


Jason Biggs previous stage credits include the Broadway production of 'The Graduate' opposite Kathleen Turner, and his Broadway debut at age 13 in 'Conversations with My Father' opposite Judd Hirsch. His film credits include 'American Pie trilogy.'
