“CLEVER LITTLE LIES”
AT THE WESTSIDE THEATRE
New York, NY (September 18, 2015) – Two time Tony Award®-winner Joe DiPietro’s critically acclaimed new comedy Clever Little Lies begins preview performances tonight at the Westside Theatre (Upstairs) (407 West 43rd Street) for a strictly limited 16-week engagement, with an opening night set for Monday, October 12, 2015.

As previously announced, Clever Little Lies stars Emmy®, Grammy®, and Golden Globe Award®-winner Marlo Thomas, Greg Mullavey, George Merrick, and Kate Wetherhead, with direction by David Saint.
A mother always knows when something is wrong. When Alice (Marlo Thomas) notices her beloved husband Bill (Greg Mullavey) has returned home on edge after a tennis match with their son, she grows suspicious and springs into action. Determined to piece together the puzzle, she invites her son, Bill, Jr. (George Merrick) and daughter-in-law, Jane (Kate Wetherhead), over for drinks and dessert. Sidesplitting chaos ensues as Alice digs for the truth, resulting in even more honesty than anyone expected. Shattering and hilarious, Clever Little Lies is a story of long-term love and marriage… for better… and for worse.
The design team for Clever Little Lies will include Yoshi Tanokura (Scenic Design), Esther Arroyo (Costume Design), Christopher J. Bailey (Lighting Design), Scott Killian (Sound Design & Composition), and McCorkle Casting (Casting).
Clever Little Lies had its world premiere at New Jersey’s George Street Playhouse in December 2013, where David Saint serves as Artistic Director. Having played a critically acclaimed sold-out run there, the production featuring the entire original cast had its New York premiere at East Hampton’s Guild Hall in July 2014 where it also became an audience and critics’ favorite.
Tickets are available by visiting the Westside Theatre box office Monday – Sunday, Noon – 6pm; or online at Telecharge.com. To order by phone, and for groups of 10 or more, call 212-239-6200. For more information, visit www.CleverLittleLies.com.
