Falling, the new play by Deanna Jent, opened last night, Monday, October 15th and began previews for an open-ended run on Thursday, September 27th at the Minetta Lane Theatre (18 Minetta Lane, one block south of West 3rd Street, just off Sixth Avenue). BroadwayWorld brings you photos from the first curtain call below!
Falling is a real life drama about how 18-year-old Josh, who has autism, affects the lives of everyone around him. When a relative comes to visit, the family is thrown off their equilibrium, with everyone trying to balance what is best for the family with what is best for each of them.
Lori Adams directs a cast that features Daniel Everidge (Grease, Fat Camp); Celia Howard (Fortinbras); Daniel Pearce (25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee; Sarah Ruhl’s Passion Play; King Lear, Measure for Measure; Henry V; Henry VI (NYSF/Public Theater); The Picture of Dorian Gray (Irish Rep); A Mother, a Daughter, and a Gun (New World Stages); and Love’s Fire (Public Theater); Jacey Powers (The Shanghai Gesture, Our Town); and Julia Murney (Wicked, The Wild Party [Drama Desk nom.], Vagina Monologues, Crimes of the Heart, Queen of the Mist, and Time and Again [Lucille Lortel nom.]).
Terry Schnuck, James & Catherine Berges, Crystal Beuerlein, and Michael & Noemi Neidorff, producers of the new Off-Broadway play, recently announced that they will donate $5 for each full-price ticket purchased for performances in October to Autism Speaks.
