MCC Theater has announced that film and television star Robin Tunney (The Mentalist) will make her stage debut opposite the previously announced Zachary Quinto in the New York premiere of Noah Haidle's Smokefall. Anne Kauffman directs the drama, which runs from February 4-March 13 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Smokefall had its world premiere at Chicago's Goodman Theatre.

Mr. Quinto’s casting was announced in October. In this play, he is Fetus Two alongside Brian Hutchison (“Pocatello”) as Fetus One. Together they pass their time in the womb discussing philosophy. Their mother, Violet, will be played by Ms. Tunney in her stage debut.

* The play is described as follows: 

New York Premiere
by Noah Haidle
directed by Anne Kauffman
Magical realism collides with manic vaudeville in a family drama unlike any you've ever seen. The Twins swap philosophy while awaiting their birth, Beauty eats dirt and doesn't speak, Father is about to drive away and never return, and a man named Footnote acts as our guide. Whipping from astonishing tenderness to profound humor and back again, this wholly original play uncovers the extraordinary family connections we all stretch and warp across the years but can never quite break.

- Info about the tickets and the dates will be available on the MCC Theater's website, HERE 
Tickets will go on sale on January 5, 2016 at 10am.
