Matt Lauria and Zosia Mamet to Partner Off Broadway in 'Really Really'
Directed by David Cromer, the drama by Paul Downs Colaizzo chronicles how ugly morning-after gossip seeds friction in a close circle of undergrad friends.
NEW YORK -- Matt Lauria of Friday Night Lights and Parenthood will star opposite Zosia Mamet of HBO's Girls in the Off Broadway production for MCC Theater of Paul Downs Colaizzo's play Really Really.
David Cromer, who staged the smash 2009 Off Broadway run of Thornton Wilder's Our Town and more recently scored another success in the same theater with Nina Raine's Tribes, will direct.
The play begins in the aftermath of a wild undergrad party, when morning-after gossip about the characters played by Lauria and Mamet rips through a tight-knit group of friends, exposing issues of sexual politics, ambition and class division.
Beginning previews Jan. 31 for a Feb. 19 opening, the drama will also star Lauren Culpepper, David Hull, Evan Jonigkeit, Kobi Libii and Aleque Reid. The play premiered last season at Signature Theater in Virginia, where it had a record-breaking run.
As previously announced, the final show in MCC Theater's 2012-13 season will be the world premiere of Neil LaBute's Reasons to Be Happy, a companion piece to the playwright's 2009 Tony-nominated drama Reasons to Be Pretty. No casting has been set for that production, which LaBute will also direct.
