Extra Performances of 'UNCONDITIONAL' Announced


LAByrinth Theater Company (John Ortiz, Artistic Director; Philip Seymour Hoffman, Co-Artistic Director; John Gould Rubin, Co-Artistic Director & Executive Director), in residence at The Public Theater, has announced the addition of extra performances to the limited engagement of the second production of their 2007-2008 season: the world premiere of UNCONDITIONAL by Brett C. Leonard now extended through Sunday, March 9, 2008.

Under the direction of Mark Wing-Davey, the nine-member cast features Chris Chalk, Anna Chlumsky, John Doman, who recently joined the cast replacing the previously announced William Forsythe. Saidah Arrika Ekulona, Kevin Geer, Trevor Long, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Yolonda Ross, and Isiah Whitlock, Jr. Due to technical reasons, preview performances, originally slated to begin February 7th, will now begin Sunday afternoon, February 10, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. at The Public Theater (425 Lafayette Street).  Opening night remains as scheduled for Monday, February 18, 2008 at 7:00 p.m.

UNCONDITIONAL by Brett C. Leonard is a new play, in which nine New York stories converge in a racially and sexually charged tale of love, justice, rage and betrayal.  Mr. Leonard was honored earlier this week with the 2008 Creative Spirit Award. The creative team includes Mark Wendland (Set), Mimi O'Donnell (Costumes), Japhy Weideman (Lighting), and Bart Fasbender (Sound).

The production's scenic design will transform the LuEsther Hall at The Public, where UNCONDITIONAL will be staged in the round, allowing LAByrinth to offer tiered pricing for the first time.  Regular seating, at both ends of the stage, is priced at $50, with Gallery seating on raised platforms at either side of the stage available at $35.  Single tickets are now on sale and available online at or by phone at (212) 967-7555.  Tickets can also be purchased in person at The Public Theater Box Office (425 Lafayette Street, hours Sunday and Monday from 1.00pm to 6.00pm, and Tuesday through Saturday from 1.00pm to 7.30pm).
