Photo Flash: First Look at Signature Theatre's THE DANCE AND THE RAILROAD
Signature Theatre presents The Dance and the Railroad written by David Henry Hwang and directed by May Adrales. All tickets for the initial run of the production are $25 as part of the Signature Ticket Initiative: A Generation of Access. The production runs through March 17, 2013 with a February 25 opening night in The Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues).
The cast includes Ruy Iskandar (The Public Theater's Measure for Measure and Classic Stage Company's Purimcelo) as Ma and Yuekun Wu (Theater for the New City's Love in Tears and Laughter & Luo Shen: Legend of the Luo River) as Lone.
On a California mountaintop in 1867 near the Transcontinental Railroad, two Chinese workers struggle through poverty and hunger to reconnect with the traditions of their homeland. The Dance and the Railroad follows the twice-extended GOLDEN CHILD as the second production in the Residency One: David Henry Hwang Series.
Tickets to the initial runs of all Signature Productions at The Pershing Square Signature Center are $25, part of the groundbreaking Signature Ticket Initiative: A Generation of Access, a program that guarantees affordable and accessible tickets to every Signature production for the next 20 years. Serving as a model for theatres and performing arts organizations across the country, the Initiative was founded in 2005 and is made possible by lead partner The Pershing Square Foundation. Additional support provided by Founding Sponsor Time Warner Inc., Margot Adams, the Ford Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
