The world-premiere production of Taylor Mac's new comedy Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus has now set its opening night for April 21 at Broadway's Booth Theatre. Preview performances began on March 11.

As previously announced, Andrea Martin departed the company on March 4 after a rehearsal accident that resulted in four broken ribs. Cast member and Tony Award nominee Kristine Nielsen assumed Martin's role of Janice, and Tony Award winner Julie White joined the company in the role of Carol, which was originally to be played by Nielsen.

Starring three-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane and directed by five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe, Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus is set just after the blood-soaked conclusion of William Shakespeare's first tragedy, Titus Andronicus. The civil war has ended. The country has been stolen by madmen, and there are casualties everywhere — among them a midwife on the verge of death (White). And two very lowly servants (Lane and Nielsen) are charged with cleaning up the bodies. The year is 400 — but it feels like the end of the world.
