Producer Scott Rudin has announced that three-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane and two-time Tony Award winner Andrea Martin will return to Broadway next year in the world premiere of Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus, a new comedy by Pulitzer Prize finalist and MacArthur Fellow, Taylor Mac.
Directed by five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe, the show will begin previews at Broadway’s Booth Theatre on Tuesday 5 March 2019, with an opening night set for Thursday 11 April 2019.
Gary is set just after the blood-soaked conclusion of William Shakespeare’s first tragedy, Titus Andronicus.
In Gary, Taylor Mac’s singular world view intersects with Shakespeare’s first tragedy, Titus Andronicus.
In Mac’s extraordinary new play, set during the fall of the Roman Empire, the years of bloody battles are over. The civil war has ended. The country has been stolen by madmen, and there are casualties everywhere. And two very lowly servants – Lane and Martin – are charged with cleaning up the bodies. It’s only 400 B.C. – but it feels like the end of the world.
