A dark comedy full of romantic errors, wit, and suspense, Centenary Stage Company hosts the New Jersey premiere of “Becky Shaw” at the Lackland Center at Centenary College on February 19. The show runs through March 6.
A Pulitzer Prize finalist from Obie Award-winner Gina Gionfriddo, “Becky Shaw” was a smash hit Off-Broadway and will thrill audiences seeking smart entertainment.
Following a group of thirty-somethings, Suzanna doesn’t know when she decides to set her best friend Max up on a blind date with her husband’s mysterious co-worker, Becky Shaw, that she will set into motion a series of cataclysmic events that will forever change their lives.
Variety called the play “blithely cynical and devastatingly funny,” while The New York Times said that “One of the great pleasures of BECKY SHAW is the way the moral ground keeps shifting underneath your feet.”
Centenary Stage Co.’s show is directed by Tony-nominated Lynne Taylor-Corbett. Her work spans across theater, dance, television, and film, and she has been nominated for awards for her work on and off Broadway. Film credits include choreographer for the 1984 version of “Footloose.” She is a proud member of the Society of Directors and Choreographers.
