Photo Flash: New Shots from PTP/NYC's NO END OF BLAME at Atlantic Stage 2

PTP/NYC (Potomac Theatre Project), in association with Middlebury College, proudly presents its 30th repertory season, its 10th consecutive in New York City, running now through August 7, 2016 in a limited 5-week Off-Broadway engagement at The Atlantic Stage 2, located at 330 West 16th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. This season's line-up includes a revival of Howard Barker's No End of Blame: Scenes of Overcoming, directed by PTP's Co-Artistic Director Richard Romagnoli (a NYIT Award nominee). BroadwayWorld has a fresh look at the cast onstage below!

Howard Barker's No End of Blame: Scenes of Overcoming opened last night, July 13, and runs through August 7.

In a harsh, relentless ride through history, Howard Barker's No End of Blame: Scenes of Overcoming explores the role of the artist in society and the struggle for freedom of expression. Starting with a harrowing depiction of war with an attempted rape and a near execution in the Carpathian Mountains during WWI, the protagonist is the brilliant Hungarian political cartoonist Bela Veracek (loosely based on the celebrated German cartoonist Victor Weisz). Running from Hungary at the end of the First World War to the newly emergent Soviet Union and then to a pre-WWII Britain, Bela is constantly at odds with the governments he lampoons, and the newspapers that admire his talent, but expect conformity and absolute submission. No End of Blame is a provocative play of ideas and a scathing commentary about the censorship of art.

Audiences who were stunned by last season's Scenes From An Execution will immediately see Jan Maxwell's fierce and unsparing Galactia reflected in Alex Draper's uncompromising Bela Veracek. As always, Richard Romagnoli directs Howard Barker's work.

The cast for No End of Blame: Scenes of Overcoming includes NYIT Award nominee Alex Draper (Scenes From An Execution, Gertrude - The Cry and Pentecost with PTP), David Barlow (Scenes From An Execution, Gertrude - The Cry and Serious Money with PTP), Stephanie Janssen (A Delicate Balance and Death of a Salesman on Broadway, Crave with PTP), Valerie Leonard (An Ideal Husband on Broadway, The Europeans and The American Dream with PTP), Christopher Marshall (A Hard Heart with PTP), Jonathan Tindle (Scenes From An Execution and Pentecost with PTP), Christo Grabowski (Pentecost and Monster with PTP), Nicholas Hemerling (Scenes From An Execution with PTP), Alexander Burnett, Shannon Gibbs, Steven Medina, Ashley Fink and Gabrielle Owens.

The production team includes Hallie Zieselman (Set Design), Mark Evancho (Lighting Design), Danielle Nieves (Costume Design), Gerald Scarfe (Cartoon Projections) and Eric Conner Marlin (Production Stage Manager).

Tickets are $35, $20 for students and seniors, $17.50 for previews, and can be purchased online at PTPNYC.org or by calling 1-866-811-4111.
