THE LONELIEST NUMBER
by Lizzie Vieh
Performances begin February 22, 2018
Amios presents the World Premiere of THE LONELIEST NUMBER by Lizzie Vieh. The production marks the directorial debut of Tony Award nominee Maria Dizzia (In The Next Room, Orange is the New Black). Previews begin February 22 at The Flamboyán Theater.
In THE LONELIEST NUMBER, a couple attempts to revive their struggling marriage by taking on a new “third” every month. As these partners and side-partners become wound into each other’s lives, personalities collide and relationships disintegrate, calling into question whether any connection can really be casual.
THE LONELIEST NUMBER was originally presented as a short play in Amios’ long-running and wildly popular SHOTZ! short play series. It was later developed into a full-length play as part of Amios’ First Draughts series, and is the first production to pass all the way through the Amios development pipeline.
The production stars Maurice Jones (Broadway’s The Cherry Orchard with Diane Lane, Romeo & Juliet with Orlando Bloom, Julius Caesar with Denzel Washington), Cassandra Paras (The Amoralists), Leigh Williams (five seasons with Riverside Theatre Shakespeare Festival) and Justin Yorio (Amios, The Foundry Theater, Dutch Kills, The Assembly) with set by Frank J. Oliva, lighting by Ali Hall, costumes by Jocelyn Pierce and sound by Nick Abeel.
February 22 – March 10
