Photo Coverage: Playwrights Horizons' THE (CURIOUS CASE OF THE) WATSON INTELLIGENCE Celebrates Opening Night
Playwrights Horizons presents the World Premiere production of The (Curious Case of the) Watson Intelligence, a new play by Madeleine George (The Zero Hour). Directed by two-time Obie Award winner Leigh Silverman (Go Back to Where You Are, Blue Door and The Call at PH; The Madrid, Chinglish, Golden Child, Well), the production celebrated its opening last night, December 9 at 7PM . It will play a limited engagement through Sunday evening, December 29 at Playwrights Horizons' Mainstage Theater (416 West 42nd Street). BroadwayWorld was there for opening night and you can check out photos below!
The cast features Tony Award nominee John Ellison Conlee (The Full Monty, Murder Ballad, The Madrid, Pig Farm),David Costabile ("Breaking Bad," "Suits," Lincoln, Mr. Marmalade, Translations, Caroline or Change) and Amanda Quaid (Cock, Luck of the Irish, The Seagull, A Public Reading...Disney).
Watson (Mr. Conlee): trusty sidekick to Sherlock Holmes; loyal engineer who built Bell's first telephone; unstoppable super-computer that became reigning Jeopardy! champ; amiable techno-dweeb who, in the present day, is just looking for love. Four constant companions become one in this brilliantly witty, time-jumping, loving tribute (and cautionary tale) dedicated to the people - and machines - upon which we all depend.
