Directed by Jonathan Bank, the production will play a limited engagement December 27 through February 18, 2017. Opening night is scheduled for January 26 at the Beckett Theater at Theatre Row.Along with Essen as Stephen Meredith, the cast of the world premiere will also include Todd Cerveris (South Pacific) as Dr. Alan Kirby, Mikaela Izquierdo (Cyrano de Bergerac) as Diana Streatfield, Elisabeth Gray (Breakfast at Tiffany) as Anne Meredith and John Hutton (Lincoln) as Gordon Meredith.Yours Unfaithfully was published in 1933 but never produced, making this Mint Theater production a very belated world premiere. The play is an intimate peek behind the closed doors of an open marriage. Stephen and Anne, blissfully happy for eight years, are committed to living up to their ideals. When Stephen, a writer who isn’t writing, begins to sink into a funk of unproductive moodiness, Anne encourages him to seek out a fresh spark. Can their marriage survive uncompromising generosity, sacrifice and love? Related Showscenter_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Feb. 18, 2017 Yours Unfaithfullylast_img
