Cherry Lane Theatre
Former Guiding Light stars Robert Bogue and Saundra Santiago wrapped previews of their new play, Manipulation. The production took place at the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City and is written by Victoria E. Calderon.
In Manipulation, Cristina outwardly appears to have everything she can desire, however, she cannot enjoy her life. Her husband, Mauricio, torments her with flagrant displays of infidelity while her mother, Dona Beatriz, encourages her to have an affair with Luis. When Cristina turns to a psychoanalyst for help, he proceeds to take advantage of her. With every attempt to find herself, Cristina is manipulated back into submission until she finds a way to cut the ties that bind her to her previous existence.
Scheduled to premiere on June 16, Playbill is reporting Manipulation is on hiatus, while changes are being implemented. A new premiere date has not been announced.
