Daniel Craig To Lead NYTW's One-Night-Only Reading Of Caryl Churchill's A NUMBER
New York Theatre Workshop (NYTW) has announced that they will present a special one-night-only reading of A Number, by NYTW Usual Suspect and five-time Obie Award winner Caryl Churchill (Love and Information; A Number), directed by NYTW Usual Suspect and Tony Award winner Sam Gold (Fun Home, Othello) and featuring Daniel Craig (Othello, Spectre). The reading will benefit NYTW's Artist Workshop and Education programming and will take place at New York Theatre Workshop (79 East 4th Street) Sunday, March 10, 2019 at 7pm.
For almost three decades, NYTW has been an American home for one of theatre's most important voices, Caryl Churchill, with eight fruitful collaborations including the American Premiere of A Number in 2004. Daniel Craig originated the role of Bernard 1, Bernard 2, and Michael Black in the World Premiere production at the Royal Court in 2002. This one-night-only event reunites Craig and director Sam Gold after the sold-out run of Othello at NYTW in 2016. Additional casting will be announced shortly.
A Number is part of a year-long celebration of New York Theatre Workshop's 40th Anniversary, featuring a variety of events honoring the past and celebrating the future of a community dedicated to helping us all better understand our world through theatre. This one-night-only reading is the latest in a slate of events including a RENT Live watch-party, NYTW's 40th Anniversary Gala honoring NYTW Founding Trustee Stephen Graham, and the upcoming #WorkshopNight to welcome Hadestown to Broadway on March 25th. Additional events will be announced throughout the year.
Tickets for the reading begin at $500 and can be purchased at NYTW.org and by phone at 212-460-5475.
