The New York premiere of Mara Nelson-Greenberg’s DO YOU FEEL ANGER?, directed by Margot Bordelon, opened at Vineyard Theatre (108 East 15th Street) last night. Scroll down for photos of the opening curtain call and party.
DO YOU FEEL ANGER? began previews on March 13th and will run through April 20th. The cast includes Tom Aulino (ON THE TOWN), Ugo Chukwu (WHAT TO SEND UP WHEN IT GOES DOWN), Megan Hill (EDDIE AND DAVE), Greg Keller (Vineyard’s THE AMATEURS), Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard), Jeanne Sakata (HOLD THESE TRUTHS) and Tiffany Villarin (TEENAGE DICK).
In Mara Nelson-Greenberg’s dazzling dark comedy, Sofia (Villarin) is hired as an empathy coach at a debt collection agency — and clearly, she has her work cut out for her. These employees can barely identify what an emotion is, much less practice deep, radical compassion for others. As they painstakingly stumble towards enlightenment, someone keeps mugging Eva (Hill) in the kitchen, and the unspoken dynamics of their seemingly blithe workplace culture become increasingly unsettling. This absurdly funny and potent new play, directed by Margot Bordelon, reminds us that change is not always easy, and may come with unexpected costs.
