On Wednesday, January 26, the Atlantic Theatre Company's production of The New York Idea had its opening night at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. The show, which is adapted by David Auburn from the original play by Langdon Mitchell, will run through February 26.
Mark Brokaw directed the production, which features Patricia Conolly, Michael Countryman, Francesca Faridany, Mikaela Feely-Lehmann, Rick Holmes, John Keating, Peter Maloney, Jaime Ray Newman, Patricia O'Connell, Jeremy Shamos, Joey Slotnick, and Tom Patrick Stephens.
The play follows a freewheeling young divorcee in 1906 New York City society who decides to settle down again into a much more stable, reliable relationship with a prominent judge. Little does she know, however, that neither of their impetuous and unpredictable ex-spouses, nor her beloved race horse Cynthia K is yet down for the count.
The production features scenic design by Allen Moyer, costume design by Michael Krass, lighting design by Mary Louise Geiger, and original music by Lewis Flinn.
