Edie Falco’s Manhattan Theatre Club debut
Four-time Emmy Award-winner and Tony Award-nominee Edie Falco debuted at the Manhattan Theatre Club Tuesday in the world premiere of The Madrid. The new comedy by Liz Flahive casts the celebrated actress as a woman who yearns for something new, despite her seemingly perfect life.
According to the Manhattan Theatre Club's website, "Falco stars as Martha, a kindergarten teacher with a life many would want: a loving husband, a devoted daughter. But when she leaves it all behind, it's up to her daughter Sarah to pick up the pieces. Two-time Obie winner Leigh Silverman (Chinglish, From Up Here, In the Wake) directs this hilarious and heartbreaking story about motherhood, freedom, and trying to see the people in your family as they really are."
Seth Clayton, John Ellison Conlee, Brooke Ashley Laine, Heidi Schreck, Frances Sternhagen, Phoebe Strole and Christopher Evan Welch round out the cast.
