‘Words’ hurt MCC cast

Off Broadway production pushes back opening

MCC Theater’s Off Broadway staging of “Fifty Words” has pushed back its opening by a few days because of injuries suffered by the two-hander’s thesps.

Stars Elizabeth Marvel and Norbert Leo Butz have both managed to hurt themselves during the preview period for “Fifty Words,” the second Michael Weller play to appear Off Broadway this fall. Staging of the production, about a tumultuous evening in the life of a married couple, is said to include a chunk of highly physical action.

After canceling the Wednesday evening show, MCC decided to reschedule press perfs and push the opening from Sept. 28 to Oct. 1.
