For Better OR
The Perplexed, a bitingly witty new play, reunites Tony winner Richard Greenberg (Take Me Out) with MTC’s award-winning Artistic Director Lynne Meadow ’68 (The Assembled Parties) for a night of hilarity, hijinks, and frankly, a bit of perplexity. Join us at the Manhattan Theater Club on Tuesday, March 24th for the production of The Perplexed with a post-show discussion led by award-winning Artistic Director and Bryn Mawr alum, Lynne Meadow ’68.
Two families, whose lives have been tumultuously intertwined for decades, gather in the massive library of a Fifth Avenue apartment to celebrate the nuptials of their children. Nothing goes smoothly, and as the big moment approaches, the burning question is: can everyone put aside long-smoldering jealousies and deep-seated grudges and just get through the ceremony?
Lynne Meadow ’68 has been Artistic Director of Manhattan Theatre Club (MTC) since 1972, where she has been responsible for directing and/or producing over 500 New York and world premieres. Lynne has created one of the nation’s most acclaimed not-for-profit theatres and brought MTC to the forefront of the American stage. She has accepted every major theatre award on behalf of the company; under her leadership, MTC’s productions have been awarded 23 Tony Awards, 39 Drama Desk Awards and seven Pulitzer Prizes. Lynne is a ’68 graduate of Bryn Mawr College, where she served on the Board of Trustees. She attended the Yale School of Drama and was named a Herbert Brodkin Fellow. She has taught at Circle in the Square Theatre School, Stony Brook University, Yale University, Fordham University and New York University.
