After Pulitzer Win, THE FLICK to Return to New York City at Barrow Street Theatre
Just after today's news that Annie Baker's THE FLICK is being honored with the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, The New York Times reports that the drama will return to New York City at the Barrow Street Theatre "in the near future", according to a spokesman for producer Scott Rudin.

Baker told the Times that she expects the original Playwrights Horizons cast, including Alex Hanna, Louisa Krause, Matthew Maher and Aaron Clifton Moten, to return for the remount, assuming they are available. BUYER & CELLAR is currently playing at the theater through August.
Playwrights Horizons' official description of THE FLICK reads: "In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35 millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles, and not-so-tiny heartbreaks, more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen, play out in the empty aisles. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, THE FLICK is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world."
