Photo Coverage: Inside Opening Night of Transport Group's HOUSE FOR SALE

OBIE and Drama Desk Award-winning Transport Group presents the world Premiere of HOUSE FOR SALE, the first of any work by National Book Award novelist and Pulitzer finalist Jonathan Franzen (FREEDOM, THE CORRECTIONS) to be presented on stage. The show is playing The Duke on 42nd Street (229 West 42nd Street, Times Square, NYC), and opened last night October 24, running through November 18, 2012. BroadwayWorld brings you photos from opening night below!

Gorgeously conceived into theatrical terms by internationally acclaimed director Daniel Fish (The Chocolate Factory's A SUPPOSEDLY FUN THING I'LL NEVER DO AGAIN), HOUSE FOR SALE follows Franzen to his childhood home in Missouri as he prepares to put it on the market following his mother's passing. In the process, he is immersed in memories of his childhood, growing up in a place he once cherished. Exploring ideas of change, loss, and the value of the "quintessential American Dream," HOUSE FOR SALE is a daring exploration of both the merging of art forms as well as the very essence of wrestling with one's past.

The cast features Rob Campbell, Merritt Janson, Lisa Joyce, Christina Rouner and Michael Rudko.

HOUSE FOR SALE is written by Jonathan Franzen, adapted and directed by Daniel Fish with original music by Polly Pen. The creative team includes scenic designer Laura Jellinek, lighting designer Thomas Dunn, costume designer Terese Wadden, sound designer Daniel Kluger and video projections by Andrew Lazarow. Musical Director is Katya Stanislavskaya. Casting is by Jack Doulin. Production stage manager is Neveen Mahmoud, production manager is Pope Jackson, stage manager is Theresa Flanagan and assistant director is Alexandra Keuchler Caffali.

PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE: Tuesday 7pm; Wednesday 7pm; Thursday 7pm; Friday 8pm; Saturday 8pm; Sunday 7pm (3pm Showings on 10/28, 11/4, 11/11, 11/17). Ticket pricing: $45 - $58. Box Office Hours: Tuesday-Friday: 4pm - 7pm and Saturday: 12pm - 7pm. Box Office hours are extended on performance days.
