Photo Flash: New Billy the Kid Play MUST Celebrates Opening Night Off-Broadway
Bruce Willis (Moonlighting, Die Hard, Misery on Broadway) and The Burgess Group present the limited engagement Off-Broadway run of MUST, a compelling new play about Billy the Kid and Pat Garret written by Charles Cissel and directed by Gabriel Vega Weissman, running now through November 19th at The Theater at St. Clements (423 W 46th St). The production opened on Monday, November 6th, and BroadwayWorld has photos from the festivities below!
Mr. Fred Zollo (Tony-award winning producer of Once, The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?, Private Lives, Angels in America) assisted in the development of the production, and calls Mr. Cissel is "a striking new voice in the American Theater."
In the New Mexican desert, on the night before his murder, Billy the Kid is restless and alone. As he reflects on the relationships that have informed his life, he conjures his mother, his lover, Sheriff Pat Garrett and the man he thinks might be his father. Through memories, visions and feverish dreams, he confronts each of them. As he gains real insight into their lives and struggles, he discovers how he went from being a normal kid in New York City to being the notorious gunfighter Billy The Kid. At sunrise, he MUST face Garrett with this newfound understanding of life, purpose and infamy.
The cast of MUST features Brendan Dooling (TV's The Carrie Diaries) as Billy The Kid, John Clarence Stewart (TV's Gotham & Netflix's Luke Cage), Meredith Antoian (Here We Wait), Mark ElliotA. Wilson (We Need To Talk About Kevin) and Sally Ann Triplett (Finding Neverland, The Last Ship, Carrie on Broadway). Casting is by Chad Eric Murnane, CSA.
