Great Crew Together for MCC Staged Reading...

MCC Theater announced that Craig Bierko (pic 2) has joined the cast of Playwright-in-Residence Neil LaBute’s Filthy Talk for Troubled Times: Scenes of Intolerance, which the company will present for three nights only this week. The company will also feature Alice Eve, Johnny Galecki (pic 1), Josh Hamilton, Justin Long (pic 4) and Julia Stiles (pic 3), which will take on a variety of plum LaBute roles in this series of ‘shorts.’ The previously announced Bobby Cannavale and T.R. Knight have departed the production due to scheduling conflicts. The readings will take place this Thursday, June 3, Friday, June 4 and Saturday, June 5, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (121 Christopher Street, NYC). Proceeds will benefit MCC Theater’s Playwrights’ Coalition program, free PlayLab reading series, and literary development activities.

“America’s reigning misanthrope” (The Village Voice) Neil LaBute gets down and dirty once more in Filthy Talk for Troubled Times. Sex, sexism, bigotry and even “Frank f----n’ Sinatra” are all given the one-two punch in this finely fused attack on the degraded rubble we sometimes call American culture. Internationally renowned for his darkly-comic morality plays (Some Girl(s), Fat Pig), and fresh off the Tony Award-nominated Broadway run of Reasons to Be Pretty, Neil LaBute returns to MCC Theater to direct his latest provocation for three benefit performances only.

Tickets for the general public, ranging from $39 to $99, may be purchased by visiting or calling (212) 279-4200. The Thursday, June 3 performance will include an exclusive post-show celebration with members of the company. Specially-priced tickets for this celebration event can be purchased by contacting the MCC Development Department at (212) 727-7722 ext. 233.
