The New Group in association with Jeffrey Seller, Kevin McCollum & The Kennedy/Marshall Company proudly present the critically acclaimed revival of Hurlyburly by David Rabe as the premiere production at the new 37 Arts complex (450 West 37th Street). A transfer of the recent New Group production, this 12-week limited Off-Broadway engagement begins previews on Monday, April 11th and opens officially on Wednesday, April 20th at 7:00 PM.
Written by David Rabe, Hurlyburly depicts the addled lives of four Los Angeles men caught in love-hate relationships with Hollywood women. The play is a brutally comic reflection on the decade of decadence in the cocaine-and-sex infused Hollywood Hills in the mid-1980s. The recent New Group production that opened on January 27, 2005 marked 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. Set design is by Derek McLane, lighting design is by Jason Lyons, sound design is by Ken Travis and costume design is by Jeff Mahshie.
37 Arts, a new performing arts complex, will celebrate its official opening with Hurlyburly. This 50,000 square-foot, 6-story building will house a unique combination of commercial and non-profit arts organizations including three live theater spaces. The Mikhail Baryshnikov Foundation has purchased the top three floors of the complex as a home for The Baryshnikov Arts Center, which features four studios, offices, and dressing rooms that will be made available to young dancers, choreographers, playwrights, film makers, actors and designers.
Hurlyburly will play at 37 Arts (450 West 37th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues) as follows: Monday through Saturday @ 8:00 PM, with matinee performances on Saturday @ 2:00 PM.
