Photo Coverage: Opening Night at Awake and Sing!

Clifford Odets' classic drama Awake and Sing!, directed by Bartlett Sher, opened on Monday, April 17th, on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre, the very theatre where the play had its world premiere in 1935. The show began previews on March 24th. Lincoln Center Theater's production will celebrate Odets' centenary.

Awake and Sing! is the story of a Jewish family in the Bronx who have fallen on hard times during the Depression. Widely considered Odets' masterpiece, the drama premiered on Broadway in 1935 and, a resounding hit, was the legendary Group Theatre's first Broadway production, according to press notes.

The performance schedule for the show is Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8pm, with matinees Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2pm and Sundays at 3pm. (There is no Saturday matinee on March 25.). Tickets, priced at $51.25 to $86.25, are available at the Belasco Theater Box office (111 West 44 Street) or by calling Telecharge at (212) 239-6200. For more information, visit
