“Mary-Louise Parker and Denis Arndt…for my money, are the sexiest couple on a New York stage. A soaring, suspenseful, thrilling and wondrously stealthy play.” – Ben Brantley, NY Times
Center Theatre Group brings Manhattan Theatre Club’s acclaimed production of Heisenberg by Tony Award winner Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) to the Mark Taper Forum starring Tony and Emmy Award winner Mary-Louise Parker (Proof, Weeds) and Denis Arndt (The Night Alive, Basic Instinct) directed by Drama Desk Award winner Mark Brokaw (The Lyons, How I Learned to Drive) as part of CTG’s 50th Anniversary Season.
Amidst the bustle of a crowded London train station, 40ish Georgie spots seventy-something Alex and plants a kiss on his neck. This electric encounter thrusts two strangers into a fascinating and life-changing game. The play’s title comes from the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, which Georgie reduces to: “If you watch something closely enough you realize you have no possible way of telling where it’s going or how fast it’s getting there.”
“Stephens…does nothing less than alchemy here. He captures new love and old love at the same time, hope and fear, the new world and the old. He’s turned the simplest of tales—boy meets girl—into an unexpectedly rich thing with just two chairs, two tables and two actors.” – Mark Kennedy, Associated Press
