Photo Flash: Awake and Sing! in Previews

Clifford Odets' classic drama Awake and Sing!, directed by Bartlett Sher, began performances Friday, March 24th on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre (111 West 44 Street), the very theatre where the play had its world premiere in 1935. Opening night is scheduled for Monday, April 17th. Lincoln Center Theater's production will celebrate playwright Odets' Centenary.

While its hit production of the Tony Award-winning musical The Light in the Piazza continues uptown at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, Lincoln Center Theater will present the show at the Belasco Theatre (111 West 44th Street), the very theatre where the play had its world premiere in 1935. Lauren Ambrose ("Six Feet Under"), Mark Ruffalo (films such as 13 Going on 30, off-Bway's This is Our Youth), Ben Gazzara (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Jonathan Hadary (All Shook Up, Gypsy), and Zoe Wanamaker (Electra, Piaf) will star in the play, which will also feature Ned Eisenberg (The Green Bird), Peter Kybart (Judgment at Nuremberg, The Diary of Anne Frank), Pablo Schreiber (Mr. Marmalade) and Richard Topol (Julius Caesar, The School for Scandal).

"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.

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 www.lincolncenter.org.
