The Receptionist is a new play about ringing phones, office politics and the mysteries happening where you least expect them. Beverly takes pride in her work as the receptionist at a busy Northeast office. Whether coaching her co-worker Lorraine through romantic troubles, fielding calls for their boss Mr. Raymond or carefully monitoring the flow of office supplies, Beverly keeps her domain shipshape. But when handsome Mr. Dart arrives unexpectedly from the central office, Beverly is charmed, Lorraine is smitten and Mr. Raymond is caught completely off guard. This world premiere from Adam Bock, the author of The Thugs and Swimming in the Shallows, is directed by Joe Mantello, the two-time Tony Award winning director of this season’s Blackbird at MTC, as well as Assassins, Wicked and Take Me Out. And the cast features Jayne Houdyshell, a Tony Award nominee for Well last season.
