    Sarah Jessica Parker and Blythe Danner star in the world premiere of Amanda Peet’s play The Commons of Pensacola. MTC's award-winning Artistic Director Lynne Meadow directs the production, Ms. Peet’s playwriting debut. Judith (Blythe Danner) has been divested of her assets and forced to leave her luxurious New York life after her husband’s Wall Street scam became headline news. When her daughter Becca (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Becca’s filmmaker boyfriend pay Judith a visit to the one bedroom condo Judith now occupies in Pensacola, Florida, everyone’s motives are called into question. How will past and present circumstances inform how this family moves into the future?

    The Commons of Pensacola is an incisive and funny new play about trying to love your family even when you hate what they’ve done. The production reunites two-time Emmy and four-time Golden Globe winner Parker (“Sex and the City,” Wonder of the World) and Tony and two-time Emmy winner Danner (Nice Work If You Can Get It, Meet the Parents). Parker and Danner first appeared together in MTC’s Sylvia by A.R. Gurney in 1995.

    Lead support for The Commons of Pensacola is provided by MTC’s Producing Fund Partner ANDREW MARTIN-WEBER. Special thanks to The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust for supporting Manhattan Theatre Club. Additional support for The Commons of Pensacola is provided by The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.
