Signature Theatre's OLD HATS Announces One Week Extension
Signature Theatre has announced a one-week extension for the world premiere of OLD HATS, created and performed by Tony Award winners Bill Irwin and David Shiner, with music by and featuring Nellie McKay, and directed by Tina Landau. The production will now play through Sunday, April 7. The production will begin performances on February 12 and open on March 4 in The Irene Diamond Stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues). Tickets during the extension week are $75 each.
2003-04 Playwright-in-Residence Bill Irwin reunites with fellow clown David Shiner for a new work combining their inimitable magic, slapstick, and hilarity. Using music, technology, and movement, plus other tricks up their sleeves, Irwin and Shiner create another wild and remarkable outing of theatre for a new generation of audiences. Signature is proud to present this dynamic duo's first collaboration since the smash Broadway hit Fool Moon.
The design team includes G.W. Mercier (Scenic and Costume Design), Peter Kaczorowski (Lighting Design), John Gromada (Sound Design), Wendall K. Harrington (Projection Design), Erin Kennedy Lunsford (Wig and Make-Up Design), and Steve Cuiffo (Magic Consultant). David H. Lurie is the Production Stage Manager.
