Photo Coverage: Opening Night at Hurlyburly

April 21
11:51 AM 2005
The New Group in association with Jeffrey Seller, Kevin McCollum & The Kennedy/Marshall Company proudly present the critically acclaimed revival of Hurlyburly by David Rabe as the premiere production at the new 37 Arts complex (450 West 37th Street). A transfer of the recent New Group production, this 12-week limited Off-Broadway engagement began previews on Monday, April 11th and opened officially on Wednesday, April 20th.

Written by David Rabe, Hurlyburly depicts the addled lives of four Los Angeles men caught in love-hate relationships with Hollywood women. The play is a brutally comic reflection on the decade of decadence in the cocaine-and-sex infused Hollywood Hills in the mid-1980s. The recent New Group production that opened on January 27, 2005 marked the first New York revival of Hurlyburly since its celebrated Broadway run in 1984. The 1984 production began Off-Broadway, then ran for a year on Broadway garnering four Tony® nominations.
