The New York Premiere of STILL Starring Jayne Atkinson And Tim Daly To Begin Performances This Spring
Today the New York premiere of STILL by Lia Romeo was announced to begin performances at the DR2 Theatre. Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, STILL begins previews on April 13th, for a limited engagement through May 18th, 2024. The press opening is scheduled for Thursday, April 18th.
Following a successful run at the Dorset Theatre Festival in 2023, Jayne Atkinson and Tim Daly will be reprising their acclaimed roles as Helen and Mark in this new play for anyone who’s ever wondered “what if?”
Thirty years ago, Helen and Mark broke up, but they never completely forgot about each other. When they meet for dinner to catch up, the flame is rekindled... but Mark is running for Congress, and Helen has a secret that could derail his bid. Lost love is revisited and an avocado goes flying in Lia Romeo's whirlwind New York premiere comedy about getting older, political divisions, and roads not taken.
“I wrote STILL because I was struggling with some big questions... what to do when you love someone, but you hate some of the things they believe... and what to do when there's someone you can't be with but you also can't manage to forget. I thought writing about these questions might lead me to answers. It didn't. But it did show me that they're questions that also resonate with a lot of other people,” said Playwright Lia Romeo. “I'm so excited that Colt Coeur is bringing this beautiful production to New York. Tim and Jayne bring so much sympathy to these characters... it's impossible not to love them, even when they're doing and saying terrible things to one another.”
STILL features scenic design by Alexander Woodward; costume design by Barbara A. Bell; lighting design by Reza Behjat; sound design by Hidenori Nakajo; and production stage manager Caren Celine Morris.
STILL is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature. This production is produced in association with Jane Dubin & Blair Russell, with additional support from Kim Beaty, Merrie L. Davis, Carolyn Bransford MacDonald, Lawrence O’Donnell and Mary-Anne Van Degna. STILL is being produced by Special Arrangement with Daryl Roth Productions.
