    World Premiere
    By Molly Smith Metzler
    Directed by Leigh Silverman
    With Michael Chernus, Jessica DiGiovanni, Colby Minifie,
    Rosie Perez and David Hyde Pierce

    Tony Award and four-time Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce (Accent on Youth, Curtains, “Frasier”) brings his signature wit back to the MTC stage in the World Premiere of CLOSE UP SPACE by Molly Smith Metzler. Pierce stars as Paul Barrow, an obsessive book editor on a major deadline. With an assistant (Chernus) who’s been camping in the office (Michael Chernus), a famous author (Perez) threatening to bail on him and an intern (DiGiovanni) who is no help at all, Paul’s just about had it! But when his fiery daughter (Minifie) shows up and lambasts him in Russian, Paul faces a glaring personal error that can’t be corrected with red ink. Leigh Silverman (Well, From Up Here, Chinglish) returns to MTC to direct this funny and poignant new play about how hard it can be to communicate… in any language.
