July 31st, 2014 — Second Stage Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of LAURA EASON’s play, SEX WITH STRANGERS, has been extended one week and will now play through Sunday, August 31st. The production stars Emmy Award Winner ANNA GUNN and Tony Award Nominee BILLY MAGNUSSEN and is directed by DAVID SCHWIMMER.
SEX WITH STRANGERS opened on Wednesday, July 30th to much critical praise. The New York Times states, “The talented Anna Gunn and Billy Magnussen quickly develop a simmering rapport that lights a fire under Laura Eason’s drama of good sex and bad faith.” “The Sparks Fly!” exclaims Entertainment Weekly. The New York Daily News proclaims SEX WITH STRANGERS “a juicy summer play, well-crafted with sly wit and perfect-pitch dialogue. The characters are fascinating, the coitus is hot – and, most importantly, there’s plenty of it.” And The Hollywood Reporter declares it “Sexually and intellectually proactive, and a hell of a lot of fun!”
How far will you go to get what you want? Will you be the same person if you finally do? When star sex blogger and memoirist Ethan tracks down his idol, the gifted but obscure novelist Olivia, he finds they both crave what the other possesses. As attraction turns to sex, and they inch closer to getting what they want, both must confront the dark side of ambition and the near impossibility of reinventing oneself when the past is only a click away.
SEX WITH STRANGERS features set design by Andromache Chalfant (2ST’s Bachelorette), costume design by ESosa (2ST’s By The Way, Meet Vera Stark), lighting design by Japhy Weideman (The Nance), and sound design by Fitz Patton (I’ll Eat You Last).
