Manhattan Theatre Club was founded in 1970 and has grown in four decades from a prolific Off-Off Broadway showcase into one of the country’s most acclaimed theatre organizations. They are currently producing the world premiere of Liz Flahive’s play, The Madrid. The production is directed by two time Obie award winner, Leigh Silverman and is running through May 5th.
Edie Falco stars as Martha, a kindergarten teacher with a life many would want: a loving husband and a devoted daughter. But when she leaves it all behind, it's up to her daughter Sarah to pick up the pieces. It’s a darkly funny play, certain to evoke a cavalcade of feelings anyone lucky enough to attend.
The daughter, Sarah, is played by Phoebe Strole. Phoebe was last seen in the New York City premiere of Dan LeFranc's The Big Meal at Playwrights Horizons. Other theater credits include the original cast of Spring Awakening, The Metal Children at Vineyard, and F2M at New York Stage & Film.
