In addition to Mini Coopers and breakfast teas, the U.K.’s top exports include a steady supply of slender, elegant leading men. New York has imported two such swains (and one lissome lass, Andrea Riseborough) for MCC’s production of Alexi Kaye Campbell’s Olivier Award–winning The Pride, a drama about love triangles in the 1950s and now. In the earlier era, Hugh Dancy plays Philip, a real estate agent about to embark on an affair with Oliver (Ben Whishaw), his wife Sylvia’s (Riseborough) colleague. In the present, Oliver is a shady journalist recently abandoned by his lover, Philip, and comforted by Sylvia. Native-born director Joe Mantello presides over this foreign exchange.
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, 7 p.m.; Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 2 p.m.; Sundays, 3 p.m. Starts: Jan. 27. Continues through March 28, 2010
