Photo Coverage: Inside Opening Night of Public Theater's REGULAR SINGING
Directed by Richard Nelson, REGULAR SINGING began performances at The Public Theater on Saturday, November 16 and runs in repertory with the previous Apple Family Plays through Sunday, December 15. Below, BroadwayWorld brings you photos from opening night!

Each year since 2010, Tony Award winner Richard Nelson has premiered a new play about the fictional, liberal Apple family of Rhinebeck, New York. This year, Nelson's fascinating Apple family has come together once more as the first three Apple plays triumphantly return, in repertory, along with the world premiere of the fourth and final play in this powerful and timely series, REGULAR SINGING. The compelling plays are about family, politics, change, and the way we live today. They resonate with remarkable immediacy and relevance. Each of these plays originally premiered on the night on which it is set. In THAT HOPEY CHANGEY THING, the Apples reflect on the state of their family and discuss memory, manners and politics as polls close on mid-term election night 2010 and a groundswell of conservative sentiment flips Congress on its head. InSWEET AND SAD, a family brunch stirs up discussions of loss, remembrance and a decade of change. And SORRY, which premiered last fall, finds the Apples sorting through family anxieties and confusion on the day of electing the President.
