Ethan Coen's Happy Hour Opening

Off-Broadway's Atlantic Theater Company opened the world premiere of Happy Hour, a collection of three one-act comedies by Academy Award winner Ethan Coen, Dec. 5 following previews from Nov. 16 at the Peter Norton Space on West 42nd Street. Joey Slotnick, Clark Gregg and Aya Cash are among the players.

Playwright and filmmaker Coen ("No Country for Old Men") is currently represented on Broadway with one-third of Relatively Speaking, a trio of one-act comedies that also features the work of Woody Allen and Elaine May. Coen's comedies Almost an Evening and Offices premiered at ATC.

For Happy Hour, ATC artistic director Neil Pepe (Broadway's Speed the Plow) directs an ensemble cast that includes Cassie Beck (Atlantic's Oohrah!), Aya Cash (Offices), Clark Gregg ("Iron Man," "The New Adventures of Old Christine"), Susan Hyon (Crane Story), Rock Kohli, Gordon MacDonald ("Trumbo," "Saving Grace"), Amanda Quaid (Equus), Ana Reeder (Top Girls), Joey Slotnick (Almost an Evening) and Lenny Venito.

Guests at the performance and After Party included Jessica Biel, Kathryn Erbe, Carla Gugino, Jeffrey Lawson, Mary McCann and Isiah Whitlock, Jr.

The Play sounds really interesting. Click here for more information and how to get tickets.

I really adore Kathryn's clothes ensemble. The coat is amazing, tight jeans and cool boots. The top/sweater reminds me of the black shirt Alex wore to the last scene of To the Boy in the blue Knit Cap. Wow, her hair is getting really dark again...mhm.
