Photo Coverage: KNICKERBOCKER Opening Night Arrivals at the Public!

The Public Theater opened the New York premiere of KNICKERBOCKER, written by Jonathan Marc Sherman and directed by Pippin Parker last night, May 19. The final show in the 2010-2011 Public LAB season, KNICKERBOCKER began performances on May 6. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the opening night arrivals and brings you photo coverage below!

The cast for KNICKERBOCKER features Mia Barron (Pauline), Alexander Chaplin (Jerry), Bob Dishy (Raymond), Christina Kirk (Tara), Drew Madland (Steve), Zak Orth (Chester), and Ben Shenkman (Melvin).

"Are you ready?" Jerry confronts this question from the womb of his favorite restaurant booth while the months pass by and the son he and his wife Pauline are expecting grows from the size of a peach to the size of...a baby. As the due date approaches, can friends and family members help Jerry feel prepared, or just feel worse, like some un-anonymous sperm donor terrified of making the transition from being the son of a father to being the father of a son? Staged just blocks from the titular restaurant where it is set, the latest play by Jonathan Marc Sherman (Things We Want, Sophistry) is sharp, funny, and deeply felt.

KNICKERBOCKER features scenic design by Peter Ksander; costume design by Gabriel Berry; lighting design by Jeff Croiter; sound design by Walter Trarbach; and projection design by Shawn Duan.

KNICKERBOCKER, a Public LAB production, begins performances on Friday, May 6 and continues through Sunday, May 29, with an official press opening on Thursday, May 19 at 8 p.m.

The performance schedule is Tuesdays at 7 p.m.; Wednesdays through Fridays at 8 p.m.; Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and Sundays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The Public Theater is located at 425 Lafayette Street.
