Starring three-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane and directed by five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe, Gary will begin preview performances on matinee Saturday, March 9, with an opening night still set for Thursday, April 11 at the Booth Theatre.
Written by Pulitzer Prize finalist and MacArthur Fellow Taylor Mac, Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus is set just after the blood-soaked conclusion of William Shakespeare's first tragedy, Titus Andronicus.
In Mac's extraordinary new play, set during the fall of the Roman Empire, the years of bloody battles are over. The civil war has ended. The country has been stolen by madmen, and there are casualties everywhere (among them a midwife on the verge of death - White). And two very lowly servants - Lane and Nielsen - are charged with cleaning up the bodies. The year is 400 - but it feels like the end of the world.
