MTC's World Premiere of Lost Lake, With Tracie Thoms and John Hawkes, Opens Tonight | Playbill

News MTC's World Premiere of Lost Lake, With Tracie Thoms and John Hawkes, Opens Tonight Academy Award nominee John Hawkes makes his New York stage debut in the Manhattan Theatre Club world premiere of David Auburn's new play Lost Lake, which also features Rent star Tracie Thoms and officially opens Nov. 11 at New York City Center – Stage I.

Daniel Sullivan directs the production that began previews Oct. 21.

"The lakeside rental Veronica (Tracie Thoms) has managed to afford is a far cry from the idyllic getaway she and her children so desperately need," press notes state. "And the disheveled property owner, Hogan (John Hakwes), has problems of his own – problems that Veronica is inevitably and irrevocably – pulled into. An engrossing and revealing portrait of two strangers bound together by circumstance, Lost Lake is a vivid new work about the struggle for connection in an imperfect world."

Hawkes has performed in In the West and Greater Tuna. He wrote and performed the solo play Nimrod Soul at the Theatre at the Improv and appeared in New York in The 24 Hour Plays. His screen work includes "The Sessions," "Winter's Bone," "Lincoln" and "Martha Marcy May Marlene."

Thoms has performed onstage in Rent, Drowning Crow, Stick Fly and The Exonerated. Her film work includes "Rent," "Looper" and "Safe House," and she has appeared in the TV shows "Cold Case," "Veep" and "The Good Wife."

Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Auburn has written the plays The Columnist, The New York Idea, An Upset and Amateurs, The Journals of Mihail Sebastian and Proof. His film work includes "The Girl in the Park" and "The Lake House." Lost Lake features scenic design by J. Michael Griggs, costume design by Jess Goldstein, lighting design by Robert Perry and sound design and original music by Fitz Patton. Thomas Schall is movement consultant.

New York City Center – Stage I is located at 131 West 55th Street. More information is available by calling (212) 399-3050 or visiting
