THE NAME GAME
Shaleeha G'ntamobi's new play is generating a lot of buzz. And why not? Isn't everyone eager to acclaim a new African-American female voice and her edgy drama about a mother and son struggling to free themselves from the projects? But don't make space for that Susan Blackburn prize just yet. The problem: Shaleeha is actually a Danny, a very white, very male scribbler with a flair for an alias. Broadway darling Jonathan Groff stops into MCC to star in The Submission as a playwright who becomes entangled with his alias. The other stars of Jeff Talbott's new play are Eddie Kaye Thomas, Will Rogers, and Rutina Wesley. Walter Bobbie (or is that a stage name?) directs this pseudonymous comedy.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m.; Tuesdays, 7 p.m.; Saturdays, 2 p.m. Starts: Sept. 8. Continues through Oct. 22, 2011
