Primary Stages' ALL IN THE TIMING Opens Tomorrow
Primary Stages (Casey Childs, Founder & Executive Producer; Andrew Leynse, Artistic Director; Elliot Fox, Managing Director) continues their 28th season with the 20th anniversary revival of All in the Timing by David Ives. Opening night is Tuesday, February 12. Directed by Tony Award-winner John Rando (Urinetown; A Christmas Story, The Musical),the production features Eric Clem (Blue Man Group), Carson Elrod (Peter and the Starcatcher), Jenn Harris (Silence! The Musical), Liv Rooth (Venus in Fur), and Matthew Saldivar (Peter and the Starcatcher). All in the Timing runs through March 17 at Primary Stages at 59E59 Theaters..
When this evening of six one-act comedies premiered in 1993, Vincent Canby of The New York Times said "Ives is wizardly...magical and funny...a master of language." Canby also told audiences "Drop-everything-and-go!"--and audiences did, for more than 600 performances. This new production, directed by John Rando, includes plays like "Sure Thing" and "The Universal Language" which have become contemporary classics, and marks the show's first major revival in New York City since its original premiere.
"All in the Timing was an important play both for David Ives' writing career and for the life of Primary Stages," says Casey Childs. "It began at our first home on West 45th Street and has now received thousands of productions all over the world. We are delighted to be presenting this 20th Anniversary production."
All in the Timingfeatures a scenic design by Beowulf Boritt, costume design by Anita Yavich, lighting design by Jason Lyons, and original music and sound design by Ryan Rumery.
