New Play by Neil LaBute Will Debut at Off Broadway’s Second Stage Theater

As Off Broadway’s 2014-15 season continues to shape up, Second Stage Theater adds to the mix with two productions including a world premiere by Neil LaBute, “The Way We Get By.”

Set to open in summer 2015, “The Way We Get By” centers on a morning-after encounter between a man and a woman following their hookup at a boozy wedding reception. LaBute’s last Off Broadway outing, “Reasons to Be Happy,” ran last year; his recent film work has included Tribeca Film Festival alum “Some Velvet Morning” and the upcoming “Dirty Weekend,” starring Matthew Broderick and Alice Eve.

Also set for the Second Stage season is a revival of “Lips Together, Teeth Apart,” the Terrence McNally play that hasn’t been seen in Gotham since its 1992 bow at Manhattan Theater Club. A Broadway staging of the show was scuttled in 2010 when Megan Mullally exited the brewing production from Roundabout Theater Company.

Peter DuBois (“Becky Shaw”) helms the new staging for an October opening. Casting remains to be set, as do further productions on the docket for Second Stage’s 2014-15 season.
