What’s beginning (and who’s starring) Off-Broadway January 1-17, 2017.
Harriet Walter (Donmar Warehouse)
The Mint Theater returns Off-Broadway with the world premiere of Yours Unfaithfully, Miles Malleson’s 1933 never-before-produced comedy about the price of free love. The story takes a peek behind the closed doors of an open marriage, and stars Tony nominee Max von Essen, Todd Cerveris, Mikaela Izquierdo, Elisabeth Gray, and John Hutton. With direction by Jonathan Bank, performances began December 27 at the Beckett Theater at Theatre Row and continue through February 18. The production will officially open January 26.
Under the Radar Festival
The Public Theater launches its 13th annual Under the Radar Festival January 4 featuring a host of innovative artists from all over the world. The 12-day event, which has become well-known for showcasing cutting-edge and genre-defying theatre works, takes place in different venues throughout the city.
Will Swenson and Laura Osnes
A highlight of the festival is the Blueprint Specials, the revival of a collection of lost Frank Loesser musicals commissioned by the U.S. Army during World War II. The musicals are being presented in association with the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, and will be staged on the interior hangar deck of the museum—a real-life U.S. Navy aircraft carrier. Tony nominees Laura Osnes and Will Swenson star.
