Mind The Art Entertainment in association with Intimation Productions presents a limited engagement of The Timing of a Day, the award-winning 2010 Fringe Festival production written by Owen Panettieri and directed by Joey Brenneman. Lin-Manuel Miranda was on hand March 30 to moderate a talkback.
The Timing of a Day, according to press notes, "follows three New York City roommates who share a loving (if cramped) Harlem apartment and a similarly loving (if cramped) triangular friendship. As the play opens, the three find themselves navigating the regular ups and downs of city life, and the unpleasant question of where their adult lives are taking them, when an unforeseeable tragedy rips them from the ordinary and changes the course of their lives and friendships forever. What follows is the reshuffled story of their time living together viewed over the course of a single day. Slices of their future, present, and past weave together in new ways, illustrating what it is that really draws these three people together, as well as what pulls them apart. While examining life, love, and loss from one sunrise to the next, each individual is forced to question if there really is such a thing as 'perfect timing' or if all timing is just perfectly flawed."
Tickets are priced $18 in advance, $20 at the door, $13 students. Visit www.MindTheArtEntertainment.com.
