Photo Coverage: HARRY CLARKE Trio Gets Ready for Vineyard Theatre Debut!
Vineyard Theatre will soon present Tony Award-winner Billy Crudup (THE COAST OF UTOPIA, Spotlight, THE METAL CHILDREN) in the world premiere production of Harry Clarke by Obie Award-winner David Cale (LILLIAN) and directed by Leigh Silverman (VIOLET). Vineyard Theatre will produce Harry Clarke in association with Audible, the world's largest seller and producer of digital spoken-word entertainment. Harry Clarke will begin performances on October 26 and open on November 21. The production will launch The Vineyard's 35th Anniversary Season.
Artistic Directors Douglas Aibel and Sarah Stern said, ""Harry Clarke will mark the Vineyard's third artistic collaboration with Billy Crudup. He is an artist of extraordinary talent, imagination and intelligence, who embodies each role with fierce commitment. We could not be more thrilled to welcome him back to our stage, and to do so in collaboration with David Cale and Leigh Silverman, two of our longtime favorite artists who we welcome to the Vineyard for the first time. Harry Clarke is a tour-de-force in storytelling, and we look forward immensely to sharing it with audiences."
A sexually charged and wickedly funny one-man thriller, Harry Clarke is the story of a shy Midwestern man leading an outrageous double life as the cocky Londoner Harry Clarke. Moving to New York City and presenting himself as an Englishman, he charms his way into a wealthy family's life as the seductive and precocious Harry, whose increasingly risky and dangerous behavior threatens to undo more than his persona.
The design team will include scenic design by Tony Award-nominee Alexander Dodge (A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER, ANASTASIA), costume design by Kaye Voyce (SIGNIFICANT OTHER), lighting design by Alan Edwards (ZOOHOUSE), and sound design by Bart Fasbender (BLOODY BLOODY Andrew Jackson).
