Meet the Cast of Relevance at MCC
Relevance is set to officially open February 20 in the Lucille Lortel Theatre. Completing the cast is Molly Camp (The Heiress), and Emmy Award nominee Richard Masur (Transparent, Orange Is the New Black).
In Relevance, an older feminist author goes head to head with a promising young writer who is quickly becoming the leading cultural critic on race, class, and gender for a new generation. When a heated exchange between the two women goes viral, one of the women (Tony winner Houdyshell) finds herself ill-equipped to manage her message in the social media era.
