Manhattan Theatre Club announces Master Class with Tyne Daly

MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB ANNOUNCES

TONY & EMMY AWARD WINNER TYNE DALY

IN NEW BROADWAY PRODUCTION OF

TERRENCE McNALLY’S

MASTER CLASS

DIRECTED BY STEPHEN WADSWORTH

 

ON BROADWAY AT MTC’S SAMUEL J. FRIEDMAN THEATRE

PREVIEWS BEGIN TUESDAY, MAY 24; OPENING NIGHT SET FOR TUESDAY, JUNE 21

 

Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to announce that Tony and Emmy Award winner Tyne Daly will return to Manhattan Theatre Club as Maria Callas in a new Broadway production of Terrence McNally’s award-winning play MASTER CLASS directed by Stephen Wadsworth.

 

The limited engagement of MASTER CLASS will play MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street) with previews starting Tuesday, May 24 with an opening night set for Tuesday, June 21. This production, which is offered as part of MTC’s 2010-2011 subscription series, will be the first show to open as part of the 2011-2012 Broadway season.

 

Daly returns to MTC after appearing in the world premiere production of David Lindsay-Abaire’s Rabbit Hole which garnered her a Tony nomination. She received a Tony Award for her performance in the 1989 revival of Gypsy. Daly is best known for her portrayal of ‘Detective Mary Beth Lacey’ in “Cagney and Lacey,” for which she received four Emmy Awards. In addition, she received Emmys for “Christy,” and “Judging Amy.”

 

Daly previously portrayed the role of Maria Callas in an acclaimed production at The Kennedy Center last spring.

 

Manhattan Theatre Club and playwright Terrence McNally have enjoyed a collaboration that has produced some of the most successful plays of the past 25 years including McNally’s breakout hit Frankie and Johnnie in the Clair de Lune (1987); The Lisbon Traviata (1989); Lips Together, Teeth Apart (1991), which became one of the longest-running hits in MTC’s history, and Love, Valour, Compassion! (1994), which transferred to Broadway and received the Tony Award for Best Play.

 

Terrence McNally’s award-winning play about Maria Callas takes us to one of her famous master classes where, late in her own career,  she challenges the next generation to make the same sacrifices and dare to rise to the same heights she did, making her the most celebrated, the most reviled and the most controversial singer of her times.

 

Additional casting, creative team, and other listings information will be announced in the coming weeks.

 

Tickets will be available beginning Friday, December 17 by calling Telecharge at 212-239-6200 or online by visiting www.Telecharge.com. Tickets will be available at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre Box Office (261 West 47th Street) beginning Monday, January 3. Ticket prices will be $57 – $116. Continue reading
