Transport Group Brings HOUSE FOR SALE World Premiere to The Duke, Now thru 11/18
OBIE and Drama Desk Award-winning Transport Group brings you the world Premiere of HOUSE FOR SALE, the first of any work by National Book Award novelist and Pulitzer finalist Jonathan Franzen (FREEDOM, THE CORRECTIONS) to be presented on stage. The show will play The Duke on 42nd Street (229 West 42nd Street, Times Square, NYC), beginning previews tonight, October 13, 2012, opening on October 24, 2012 and running through November 18, 2012.
Gorgeously conceived into theatrical terms by internationally acclaimed director Daniel Fish (The Chocolate Factory's A SUPPOSEDLY FUN THING I'LL NEVER DO AGAIN), HOUSE FOR SALE follows Franzen to his childhood home in Missouri as he prepares to put it on the market following his mother's passing. In the process, he is immersed in memories of his childhood, growing up in a place he once cherished. Exploring ideas of change, loss, and the value of the "quintessential American Dream," HOUSE FOR SALE is a daring exploration of both the merging of art forms as well as the very essence of wrestling with one's past.
HOUSE FOR SALE is written by Jonathan Franzen, adapted and directed by Daniel Fish with original music by Polly Pen. The creative team includes scenic designer Laura Jellinek, lighting designer Thomas Dunn, costume designer Terese Wadden, sound designer Daniel Kluger and video projections by Andrew Lazarow. Musical Director is Katya Stanislavskaya. Casting is by Jack Doulin. Production stage manager is Neveen Mahmoud, production manager is Pope Jackson, stage manager is Theresa Flanagan and assistant director is Alexandra Keuchler Caffali.
