MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB'S 'LOST LAKE' PREMIERE

****
NEW YORK'S BROADWAY
****

John Hawkes



NEW YORK CITY -- Manhattan Theatre Club’s world premiere of Lost Lake, the new play by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan featuring Oscar nominee John Hawkes (The Sessions, Winter’s Bone) and Tracie Thoms (Rent, “Cold Case”) started previews for a Tuesday, November 11 opening night at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street).



The team behind the Pulitzer Prize-winning Proof and The Columnist returns to MTC with Lost Lake, a riveting and spirited world premiere play by Tony winner David Auburn, directed by Tony winner Daniel Sullivan.



The lakeside rental Veronica (Tracie Thoms) has managed to afford is a far cry from the idyllic getaway she and her children so desperately need. And the disheveled property owner, Hogan (John Hakwes), has problems of his own – problems that Veronica is inevitably and irrevocably – pulled into.




An engrossing and revealing portrait of two strangers bound together by circumstance, Lost Lake is a vivid new work about the struggle for connection in an imperfect world.



The creative team for Lost Lake features J. Michael Griggs (scenic design), Jess Goldstein (costume design), Robert Perry (lighting design), and Fitz Patton (original music & sound design).
