Next Fall - Broadway

$116.50

Geoffrey Nauffts' NEXT FALL takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. While the play's central story focuses on the 5-year relationship between Adam and Luke, NEXT FALL goes beyond the typical love story. This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to "believe" and what it might cost us not to.

Featured Reviews For Next Fall


Next Fall and Book of Grace Seek Divinity; In Looped, Valerie Harper Is Divine - Village Voice
Tightened and retouched since its Off-Broadway run last summer, Geoffrey Nauffts's Next Fall (Helen Hayes Theatre) presents a seemingly simple story that turns out to be crisscrossed with conflicting hidden agendas. The four-year relationship of Adam (Patrick Breen) and Luke (Patrick Heusinger), seen in flashback glimpses, runs up against a blank wall when Luke is concussed in a traffic accident and Adam, stressed out in the ICU waiting room, has to confront his lover's parents, divorced but both solidly born-again: tender, scatterbrained Arlene (Connie Ray) and ultra-right, ultra-self-righteous Butch (Cotter Smith). The expected Christian-unbeliever fight over pulling the plug on comatose Luke never exactly happens, and we only get a bare flicker of Adam's struggle for the right to have time alone with his dying love (evoking so many similar struggles from the worst part of the pre-"cocktail" AIDS era).

Next Fall - NY1
Nauffts’s script is a deft blend of urban comedy and pathos, exploring the legal rights of same-sex partners, religious tolerance and the crucial moral importance of speaking the truth before it’s too late.

Next Fall has been featured in the Associated Press. The article is titled 'An interest in faith sparks Broadway's 'Next Fall'.' The piece is written by Michael Kuchwara and begins: 'Next Fall' is a story of collisions - of beliefs and nonbeliefs, and of a taxi accident that leaves one of the characters in a coma and another questioning his faith or lack of it.
