'Hurlyburly' transfers to the 37 Arts Complex
The New Group's production of Hurlyburly has transferred to the new 37 Arts Complex for a twelve week run. The play opens on the 20 Apr 2005, following previews from the 11 Apr.
The New Group's production of Hurlyburly first opened off-Broadway at the Row's Acorn Theatre on the 27 Jan 2005, following previews from the 11 Jan, where it played to the 19 Mar 2005
Written by David Rabe, Hurlyburly depicts the addled lives of four Los Angeles men caught in love-hate relationships with Hollywood women. Featuring a newly revised script from Mr. Rabe, the play is a brutally comic reflection on the decade of decadence in the cocaine-and-sex infused Hollywood Hills in the mid-1980's.
This is the first New York revival of Hurlyburly since its celebrated Broadway run in 1984. The 1984 production began Off-Broadway, then ran for a year on Broadway garnering four Tony nominations.
Directed by Scott Elliott, this production features Bobby Cannavale, Josh Hamilton, Ethan Hawke, Catherine Kellner, Parker Posey, Wallace Shawn and Halley Wegryn Gross with set design by Derek McLane, lights by Jason Lyons, sound by Ken Travis, and costumes by Jeff Mahshie.
After winning the Tony Award for last year's 'Avenue Q', The New Group kicked off its 2004-2005 season with Michael Murphy's 'Sin (A Cardinal Deposed)' directed by Carl Forsman and starring John Cullum. Last year, the company presented an extended run of Wallace Shawn's 'Aunt Dan and Lemon' directed by Scott Elliott and starring Kristen Johnston and Lili Taylor and the world premiere of 'Roar' by Betty Shamieh, directed by Marion McClinton. The New Group is a theatre-in-residence at Theatre Row.
