Previews for Jez Butterworth's The Ferryman begin in just a few days (Tuesday, October 2, 2018) at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. Arriving on Broadway after an acclaimed run in the West End where it won three Oliviers (for Best New Play, Best Director, and Best Actress), The Ferryman is set to open officially on Sunday, October 21 for an open run.Who's going?!
I have to wait until November to see this one (I did Audience Rewards), but I cannot wait to see it!
This and Network are top of my list--unfortunately have to wait until January for both of them.
I've heard it is fairly important there are some good short documentaries on youtube about The Troubles, and supposedly there will be a brief overview of them in the playbill for american audiences.
Saw this in London last May abd it was one if my favorite evenings in a theater ever. This is a phenomenal play, everyone should make time to see it.I went in with an extremely limited knowledge about Irish history and didn’t feel I lost much abd wasn’t confus3d by the characters. A cursory read of The Troubles and the Disappeared would be a good lead-in though and I recommend it fir anyone with limited knowledge about these moments in history.
Going on Weds! This is high on the top of my season list and I'm expecting a stellar night
Going in two weeks! I'm very excited for this one and I've heard nothing but amazing things.
Anyone going to invited dress tonight?

Saw the Invited Dress tonight. The show is really solid. Top notch performances across the board. It's a good 3+ hours but the energy flows throughout, especially in the third act. I didn't know a single thing about it going in and completely enjoyed from start to finish. Watching documentaries or reading about what was happening politically could help, but I don't think its necessary. The play does a good job of mapping it out for you. Enjoy!
Since the play is really about human nature- you do not need any background at all to understand the story. It is very easily understandable - and riveting throughout.
I've probably heard Bono go on about Ireland enough over the years to know the backstory.
One of the best plays I've ever seen.
They are on TDF tonight and tomorrow if anyone is interested :)
Which row did you get? Let us know how partial the view was after you see it. Thank you! phan24 said: "Rush report: I walked to the box office at 10:10am this morning and there was no line and had no issues getting rush tickets. They’re “partial view” in the orchestra far sides or I overheard someone got mezzanine as well. Will report! "
