Bullet for Adolf, the outrageous new comedy by Woody Harrelson and Frankie Hyman, will play its final performance this evening, September 30, 2012 at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street). Previews began on July 19, 2012 with Opening Night on August 8, 2012. The production was originally scheduled to end its limited engagement on Sunday, September 9, but announced an extension shortly following opening night.
“Getting to write this play with Frankie, and then watch this amazing cast bring it to life, has been dream come true,” said Mr. Harrelson. “Hearing New York audiences laugh each night was the icing on the cake. We’re coming up on our final week, if you haven’t seen it yet, now’s probably a good time.”
During the summer of 1983, in the sweltering heat of Houston, an unlikely friendship is formed when a couple of mid-western rubes with uncertain futures meet up with a slick New Yorker on the run from his past. The disappearance of a WWII artifact sets off a chain of events that proves that nothing changes the present like a blast from the past. The characters that populate this hysterical, rapid-fire new comedy by real-life friends Woody Harrelson and Frankie Hyman are based on real people, though the events depicted are fiction and the names have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent.
