Manhattan Theatre Club's production of Brian Friel's Translations opened January 25th at the Biltmore Theatre (261 W. 47th St.) after beginning previews on January 4th.
The co-production with McCarter Theatre Center is directed by Tony Award-winner Garry Hynes (Beauty Queen of Leenane). "In 1981, MTC produced the American premiere of Brian Friel's masterpiece Translations. Twenty-five years later, the themes of this play are as timely as ever. Clashing cultures and tragedies of miscommunication unfold in Friel's invented Irish townland of Ballybeg, a place he has explored in his plays Dancing at Lughnasa, Aristocrats and Molly Sweeney. Poignant and moving, Translations depicts the power of language to unite and divide people in a time of cultural imperialism," state press materials.
The cast includes Niall Buggy, David Costabile, Alan Cox, Dermot Crowley, Michael FitzGerald, Morgan Hallett, Geraldine Hughes, Susan Lynch, Graeme Malcolm and Chandler Williams.
