Photo Exclusive: Austin Pendleton and Company Celebrate NORA Opening Off-Broadway
Ingmar Bergman's NORA -- an adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's classic drama A DOLL'S HOUSE -- is currently being given its English-language New York debut Off-Broadway in Austin Pendleton's production at Cherry Lane Theatre (38 Commerce St.). The show opened on November 22, and BroadwayWorld has photos from the festivities below! The five-week production of NORA runs through December 12, 2015, produced by Cherry Lane Theatre in association with La Femme Theatre Productions.
Bergman's adaptation was last performed in New York -- in Swedish -- at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in 1989. The translation used in the new production of NORA is by Frederick J. Marker and Lise Lone-Marker. NORA is based on Ibsen's riveting tale of a seemingly conventional woman coming to terms with her life in a man's world. Through the microcosm of Nora's 'doll house' marriage, both Bergman and Ibsen pose crucial questions about the role of gender in modern society.
General admission tickets to NORA are $46; reserved premium tickets are $66. Seats can be purchased online at cherrylanetheatre.org, by phone at 866 811 4111 or in person at the Cherry Lane Theatre box office at 38 Commerce St.
