STAGE TUBE: CLYBOURNE PARK Set Goes Up in the Walter Kerr!
Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and London's Olivier Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is described as the "wickedly funny and fiercely provocative new play about race, real estate and the volatile values of each." Clybourne Park explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification. See the construction of the house in the theatre, from start to finish, below!
Bruce Norris's acclaimed play under the direction of Pam MacKinnon, received its world premiere at Playwrights Horizons in 2010 and just completed a critically acclaimed pre-Broadway engagement at Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. The original cast has moved to the Walter Kerr Theatre including Crystal A. Dickinson, Brendan Griffin, Damon Gupton, Christina Kirk, Annie Parisse, Jeremy Shamos and Frank Wood. The design team features Daniel Ostling (sets), Ilona Somogyi(costumes), Allen Lee Hughes (lights), and John Gromada (sound).
