Much new work is blowing in with the March winds — here are a few which interest me:
First, I can guarantee “Ink,” with the inimitable Bertie Carvel, coming to Manhattan Theatre Club. I saw it in London, in a production the Guardian called “riveting” and “unmissable.” Get tickets now, although performances don’t begin until next month.
The Mad Ones are quite appropriately named, I think, since I saw “Miles for Mary.”.They’re back with the Ars Nova’s production of “Mrs. Murray’s Menagerie,” this time involving a focus group set in the 1970s.
Michael McKeever (“Daniel’s Husband”) returns to NY with “After,” a play about the dire consequences of bullying for five friends. Please read this excellent review of its Miami production. It will be at 59e59.
Do try to see “The White Devil,” next up from Red Bull Theatre, by John Webster. He’s also known for another Jacobean tragedy, “The Duchess of Malfi.” What a treat to see a Shakespearean era play brought to vivid, bloody life by this ambitious, stylish company.
Enjoy the first hints of Spring and a play, or two– or more!
