The off-Broadway non-profit Vineyard Theatre has announced the first production of its upcoming 2017-2018 season. Tony nominee Leigh Silverman will direct the world premiere of Harry Clarke, written by David Cale, which will begin previews on October 26, 2017, ahead of an official opening on November 12.
Synopsis: "Harry Clarke is the story of a shy midwestern man leading an outrageous double life as the cocky Londoner Harry Clarke. Moving to New York City and presenting himself as an Englishman, he charms his way into a wealthy family's life as the seductive and precocious Harry, whose increasingly risky and dangerous behavior threatens to undo more than his persona."
The production joins the previously announced world premieres of The Amateurs, written by Jordan Harrison and directed by Oliver Butler, which begins performances on February 8, 2018, and The Beast in the Jungle, a new musical by Susan Stroman, David Thompson and John Kander with Stroman additionally serving as both director and choreographer, which is set to begin performances on May 3, 2018.
There will also be a developmental lab of This Land Was Made by Tori Sampson in July 2018, completing the Vineyard's 35th Anniversary season.
Casting and additional creative team information for all productions will be announced at a late date.
