Family Week: MCC anounces full cast

MCC Theater has announced the complete casting for the company's third and final production of their 2009-2010 season, Beth Henley's Family Week, directed by Jonathan Demme.

Quincy Tyler Bernstine (Ruined) and Sami Gayle (Gypsy) will join the previously announced Kathleen Chalfant and Rosemarie DeWitt.

Performances of the four person play begin at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on 7 Apr 2010 and continue through to 23 May 2010. Opening night is set for 26 Apr.

Family Week: A year after the death of her son, Claire checks into a recovery center in the desert, searching for a way to cope. When her mother, daughter and sister arrive to participate in 'family week,' long-dormant traumas collide with recent tragedies.

Making his theatrical debut, Academy Award-winning director Jonathan Demme (Silence of the Lambs) collaborates with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Beth Henley (Crimes of the Heart) on a new version of this bitterly funny play.

Quincy Tyler Bernstine (Rickey) made her Broadway in the recently closed LCT's production of 'In the Next Room or the vibrator play.' Off-Broadway credits include 'Ruined,' 'The Misanthrope' and 'A Small, Melodramatic Story.'

Sami Gayle (Kay) has appeared on Broadway as 'Baby June' in Gypsy starring 'Patti LuPone' and has 'Annie Who' in 'Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical'.
