MAURITIUS
at Manhattan Theater Club's Biltmore Theater

STICKING TO IT
By R.B.Harris
Published June 7 2007

  Bobby Cannavale

Theresa Rebeck will be making her Broadway debut when her dark comedy, Mauritius comes to Manhattan Theatre Club's Biltmore Theater on September 13. The show, which will be directed by Doug Hughes, will open on October 4. Rebeck's other works include The Scene, Bad Dates and Omnium Gatherum. The latter( co-written with Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros), was named a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Mauritius is about two half-sisters who inherit a rare stamp collection from their mother and battle over its ownership. The play will star Bobby Cannavale and Alison Pill. Cannavale, making his Broadway debut, was in Hurlyburly and had a recurring role on television's Will and Grace. Pill is currently in the critically acclaimed MTC production of Blackbird. Previously, she had been in The Lieutenant of Inishmore, where she had received a Tony nomination. With Pill announced for this role, the talk of bringing Blackbird to Broadway seems to have been just that-all talk. Additional casting will be announced soon.

The show is a co-production of Boston's Huntington Theatre Company( where it debuted last season) and Manhattan Theatre Club. The production team includes scenic designer John Lee Beatty, costume designer Catherine Zuber and sound designer David Van Tieghem, who also composed the original music.
