A Moon for the Misbegotten Now to Open on April 9

Having transferred from the Old Vic Theatre, A Moon for the Misbegotten will begin Broadway previews March 29 and will open April 9th (the show was previously announced to open on April 8th).

Director Howard Davies and stars Eve Best, Colm Meaney, Kevin Spacey, Billy Carter, and Eugene O'Hare, will all reprise their roles from the Old Vic production. Two-time Oscar winner Spacey (The Usual Suspects, American Beauty) is also the Old Vic's Artistic Director.

All evening curtains for the show's run will begin at 7 PM.  The show runs 2:45 with intermission.

Known as acclaimed playwright Eugene O'Neill's only love story, A Moon for the Misbegotten is described in the press release as the story of "Josie Hogan (Best), a towering woman with a quick tongue and a ruined reputation who lives in a dilapidated Connecticut farmhouse with her conniving father, Phil (Meaney).  During one long moonlit night fueled by drink and lust, Josie's softer side is exposed through her feelings for Hogan's landlord Jim Tyrone (Spacey), and two implacable souls reveal to each other the grief, longing and unrequited love they've hidden from the world."

The creative team behind A Moon for the Misbegotten features Dominic Muldowney (music), T. Richard Fitzgerald and Carl Casella. (sound system design), Bob Crowley (scenic design), Lynette Mauro (costume design), Mark Henderson (lighting design) and Christopher Shutt (sound design).

Performances run Tuesday-Saturday at 7 PM, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2 PM and Sundays at 3 PM. The Brooks Atkinson Theatre is located in Manhattan at 256 West 47th Street. For tickets, visit ticketmaster.com or call (212) 307-4100.
