Photo Coverage: Translations Opening Night
Manhattan Theatre Club's production of Brian Friel/>'s Translations opened January 25th at the Biltmore Theatre (261 W. 47th St.) after beginning previews on January 4th.
The co-production with McCarter Theatre Center is directed by Tony Award-winner Garry Hynes/> (Beauty Queen of Leenane). "In 1981, MTC produced the American premiere of Brian Friel/>'s masterpiece Translations. Twenty-five years later, the themes of this play are as timely as ever. Clashing cultures and tragedies of miscommunication unfold in Friel's invented Irish townland of Ballybeg, a place he has explored in his plays Dancing at Lughnasa, Aristocrats and Molly Sweeney. Poignant and moving, Translations depicts the power of language to unite and divide people in a time of cultural imperialism," state press materials.
