BWW TV Exclusive: Doug Wright & Dale Soules Preview Atlantic Theatre Company's POSTERITY!
by BroadwayWorld TV - Mar 8, 2015

Atlantic Theater Company presents the world premiere of Posterity, written and directed by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Doug Wright and featuring Hamish Linklater, John Noble, Dale Soules, Henry Stram and Mickey Theis. Posterity is currently in previews and will officially open Sunday, March 15, 2015 for a limited engagement through Sunday, April 5 Off Broadway at Atlantic Theater Company at The Linda Gross Theater (336 West 20th Street). Norway's most celebrated sculptor (Linklater) is commissioned to create the last official portrait of the country's most famous writer, but Henrik Ibsen (Noble) proves to be an irascible, contentious sitter, as the two men wage war over both his legacy and his likeness. With his inimitable wit and insight, Doug Wright explores the nature of artistic success and the fear of being forgotten. In the special interview below, BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge sits down with Wright and Soules to chat about the new play, working together again, and more!
