Official Broadway production photos have been released for the world premiere of Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus, written by Pulitzer Prize finalist Taylor Mac and directed by Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe, which officially opened at Broadway's Booth Theatre last night. Check out our 4* review by Mark Shenton.
The photos feature three-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane in the titular role alongside Tony Award nominee Kristine Nielsen (as Janice) and Tony Award winner Julie White (as Carol).
Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus began previews at the Booth Theatre on March 11, 2019, officially opening on April 21 ahead of a limited engagement through to August 4, 2019.
Synopsis: "In Gary, Taylor Mac’s singular world view intersects with Shakespeare’s first tragedy, Titus Andronicus. In Mac’s extraordinary new play, set during the fall of the Roman Empire, the years of bloody battles are over. The civil war has ended. The country has been stolen by madmen, and there are casualties everywhere (among them a midwife on the verge of death – Nielsen). And two very lowly servants – Lane and Martin – are charged with cleaning up the bodies. The year is 400 – but it feels like the end of the world."
Gary also features original music by four-time Academy Award nominee Danny Elfman, who officially makes his Broadway debut with the production. The creative team also features scenic design by four-time Tony Award winner Santo Loquasto, costume design by Tony and Academy Award winner Ann Roth, and lighting design by nine-time Tony Award winner Jules Fisher & three-time Tony Award winner Peggy Eisenhauer.
Nathan Lane picked up his third Tony Award last season for his performance as Roy Cohn in Angels of America, winning previously for The Producers in 2001 and for A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum in 1996. He has also earned Tony Award nominations for his performances in The Front Page (2017), The Nance (2013), and Guys and Dolls (1992). His other Broadway credits include It's Only a Play, The Addams Family, Waiting for Godot, November, Butley, The Odd Couple, The Frogs, The Man Who Came to Dinner, Love! Valour!
