Sep 12-28: REFUGE OF LIES Off-Broadway!
Just got word from director Steven Day in New York that the theatre is secured and the dates set for the Off-Broadway run of my play REFUGE OF LIES. The show will open September 12 2008 at The Lion Theatre, which is part of Theatre Row on 42nd Street (two blocks from Times Square), closing September 28. Here are a couple shots of the lobby wall, listing a heap of shows that have played in the Theatre Row spaces. (Can you believe it? DRIVING MISS DAISY, FOOL FOR LOVE, ALL IN THE TIMING, KRAPP'S LAST TAPE, THE HEIDI CHRONICLES, THE DINING ROOM, THE SUBSTANCE OF FIRE...)
And my gosh, look what opens there January 15? Mike Leigh's latest...
TWO THOUSAND YEARS
by Mike Leigh; directed by Scott Elliott
Presented by The New Group
The Acorn Theatre
Jan 15 - Mar 8
Hot off their recent smash hit Abigail's Party, Artistic Director Scott Elliott re-teams with longtime collaborator Mike Leigh on his latest play, which had a sold-out, run at London's National Theatre. Leigh's play tells how an assimilated Jewish family's quiet life in suburban London is upset when their son becomes seriously devout.
