Clarence Brown Theatre Extends THE WHIPPING MAN Through 2/23

Due to popular demand and Winter Storm Pax, the Clarence Brown Theatre has added additional performances of "The Whipping Man". The added performance dates are: Sunday, February 16 at 7:30 pm, Saturday, February 22 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, February 23 at 2:00 pm.

"We are thrilled the community has responded so favorably to this production and are excited to be able to add performances to meet the demand," said David B. Byrd, CBT Managing Director.

In order to assist patrons with rescheduling, the Box Office will have extended hours Friday, February 14 with phones operating from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.

In "The Whipping Man," a wounded Jewish Confederate soldier returns to his home in Richmond only to find it ruined and abandoned, except for two former slaves also raised in the Jewish faith. As the three men celebrate Passover, they uncover a tangle of secrets and grapple with an uncertain future brought on by the end of the Civil War. The production contains strong language content and strobe lighting.

The production premiered Off-Broadway in 2011 at the Manhattan Theatre Club, for which Lopez was awarded the John Gassner Playwriting Award from the Outer Critics Circle. Having rapidly gained in popularity, it is currently being widely produced throughout the country.
