Last week previews began for Matthew Perry’s new play, The End of Longing, in New York City. Perry not only stars in the play, he also wrote it, marking his NYC play-writing and stage debuts. Joining Perry in the production are Once Upon a Time star Jennifer Morrison, alongside stage regulars Quincy Dunn-Baker and Sue Jean Kim.
Here is a summary of the play:
An alcoholic, an escort, a self-diagnosed neurotic and a well-intentioned dimwit walk into a bar… Broken and deeply flawed, they find their lives irreversibly entwined no matter how hard they try to break free of one another. The End of Longing is a bittersweet comedy that proves that broken people don’t need to stay broken.
Performances of The End of Longing will be held at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, locatd at 121 Christopher St, NYC, through June 24. One of our contributors, Denise, checked out the theater yesterday and had a great experience seeing Matthew Perry after the show:
It’s off-Broadway located downtown on Christopher Street so it’s a calmer environment (than Broadway). The security guy came out and said since there were a lot of people waiting, that Matthew would only sign and not take photos. He signed for everyone there and even came back around a second time to make sure he got everyone. Jennifer Morrison is in it also and she was super nice.
