The New Group announces extension for Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice
The world premiere musical will now run through March 22, 2020 at Pershing Square Signature Center.
Ahead of its official opening, The New Group has announced a 1-week extension for its current world premiere of Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, which began previews at the Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre within the Pershing Square Signature Center on January 16, 2020. An official opening night is set for February 4, and the limited engagement will now close on March 22, 2020 (instead of March 15).
Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice features a book by Jonathan Marc Sherman, with music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik. The production is directed by Scott Elliott, with choreography by Kelly Devine.
Synopsis: " A bittersweet comic take on the sexual revolution in which the suavely conventional lives of two successful young couples, all friends, are both stirred and shaken when they open their minds to the changing attitudes around them. Duncan Sheik and Jonathan Marc Sherman evoke both the confusions of the time, and the hard timeless lessons of marriage and emotional commitment, inspired by the brilliant and irreverent Oscar-nominated film.”
The cast includes Jennifer Damiano (as Carol), Ana Nogueira (as Alice), Joél Pérez (as Bob), and Michael Zegen (as Ted), with Suzanne Vega (as The Band Leader).
The creative team also features scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Jeff Mahshie, lighting design by Jeff Croiter and sound design by Jessica Paz.
Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice is performed as part of The New Group’s 25th anniversary season which is also set to include a world premiere production of The Seagull/Woodstock, NY in spring 2020.
Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice Tickets are available now for performances through March 22, 2020.
