Atlantic Theater Company Announces 2-Week Extension of Rajiv Joseph's Guards at the Taj
Atlantic Theater Company has announced a two-week extension of the world-premiere engagement of Rajiv Joseph’s Guards at the Taj, directed by Amy Morton. The production, which was originally scheduled to end its run on June 28, will now play through July 12.
A two-hander starring Tony Award nominees Omar Metwally (Munich) and Arian Moayed (Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo), Guards at the Taj is set in 1648 India. The play follows a pair of Imperial Guards who must watch over the completed Taj Mahal and are forced to perform an unthinkable task. It was awarded the 2015 Laurents/Hatcher Foundation Award, given annually for an unproduced, full-length play of social relevance by an emerging American playwright.
Guards at the Taj features scenic design by Timothy R. Mackabee, costume design by Bobby Frederick Tilley II, lighting design by David Weiner, original music and sound design by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen, special effects design by Jeremy Chernick, and fight direction by J. David Brimmer.
