Signature Theatre began performances for MEDIEVAL PLAY, written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan and starring Josh Hamilton and Tate Donovan, on May 15 in anticipation of a Thursday, June 7 opening night in The Irene Diamond Stage at the Company's new Frank Gehry-designed home, The Pershing Square Signature Center. Production highlights have been released and BroadwayWorld brings you a look below!
Two French mercenary knights set out on a quest for relative moral redemption against the classic comic background of late 14th century ecclesiastical politics. A story of friendship, love, noble feats of arms, indiscriminate brutality, the progressive refinement of medieval table manners and the general decline of the chivalric ideal at the onset of the Great Papal Schism of 1378.
The design team includes Walt Spangler (Scenic Design), Michael Krass (Costume Design), Jason Lyons (Lighting Design), David Van Tieghem (Sound Design) and J. David Brimmer (Fight Direction). The production stage manager is David H. Lurie.
Single tickets are now on sale for MEDIEVAL PLAY at the Signature Theatre Box Office (212-244-7529) and at signaturetheatre.org. Tickets are also on sale for Athol Fugard’s MY CHILDREN! MY AFRICA! and Will Eno’s TITLE AND DEED.
