LINE turns 50 in 2017.
New production heralds this landmark.
Next year will mark 50 years that Israel Horovitz’ stunning surreal play, LINE, will have been performing in NYC. Beginning its life at Ellen Stewart’s LaMaMa, ETC in 1967, the play moved to the 13th Street Repertory Theater in 1974 and has remained there ever since.
The original production has seen innumerable reiterations over its 5 decades, now 13th Street Rep in association with Genesis Repertory (a NY based arts and educational organization) will revive the classic in a version similar to its original form – which included a then-unknown Richard Dreyfuss.
The production is helmed by stage and film director, Jay Michaels,
who studied with Carol Ilson, the original director of the production, at 13th Street.
The cast, as it did back then is comprised of young talented artists emerging onto the New York theatre scene. The rotating repertory includes
Elliot Wygoda & Robert I. Gottlieb as Fleming
Brady Richards & Danny Berger as Stephen
Angelica Adams & Nina Cudic as Molly
Ben Lerner & Conor D. Mullen as Dolan
Andrew Schwartz & Mario Claudio as Arnall
The new “March to 50” production began October 17 and runs
EVERY MONDAY @ 7:30 p.m. at 13th Street Repertory Theater
Tickets are only $10.
Auditions for the repertory are perennial to ensure there will always be a LINE.
