Center Stage at Southampton Cultural Center will present the Long Island premiere of Neil LaBute’s The Money Shot from Thursday, January 19th through Sunday, February 5th at SCC’s Levitas Center for the Arts. The Money Shot, an acid-tongued showbiz satire by Neil LaBute premiered at the MCC Theater at the Lucille Lortel Theater in New York in 2014. The Money Shot takes place in the Hollywood Hills home of couple Karen and Bev. Karen and Steve are glamorous movie stars with one thing in common: desperation. It’s been years since either one’s had a hit, but the latest movie by a hot shot European director could change that. The night before filming a big scene (that seems destined to assure them a spot back on the pop culture radar), Karen, her partner Bev, and Steve and his aspiring actress wife Missy meet in order to make an important decision: how far will they let themselves go to keep from slipping further down the Hollywood food chain? Sexy, daring, darkly hilarious―and LaBute’s first officially billed comedy―The Money Shot lands as sharp and hot as a paparazzo’s camera flash in a starlet’s eye. Joan M. Lyons makes her solo directorial debut at Center Stage. The Money Shot features Bonnie Grice, Joseph Marshall, Tamara Salkin and Kristin Whiting. Performances will run January 19 to February 5: Thursdays at 7:30 pm, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 2:30 pm on the stage of The Levitas Center for the Arts, 25 Pond Lane, Southampton, across from Agawam Park. General admission is $22 and student (under 21 with ID is $12). Group rates, -brunch/theater and dinner theater packages available at www.scc-arts.org or by calling 631-287-4377. Reservations are encouraged.
