On the heels of a twice-extended world-premiere production at the Vineyard Theatre (produced in association with Audible), Audible Inc. has announced that Tony Award winner Billy Crudup will return to the title role in David Cale's solo play Harry Clarke for a limited 10-week run at the Minetta Lane Theatre. Directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman, performances will begin March 7 in advance of a March 18 opening.
Harry Clarke is the story of a shy Midwestern man leading an outrageous double life as the cocky Londoner Harry Clarke. Moving to New York City and presenting himself as an Englishman, he charms his way into a wealthy family's life as the seductive and precocious Harry, whose increasingly risky and dangerous behavior threatens to undo more than his persona.
The production's creative team includes Tony nominee Alexander Dodge (scenic design), Kaye Voyce (costume design), Alan Edwards (lighting design), and Bart Fasbender (sound design).
Following Harry Clarke‘s world premiere at the Vineyard Theatre last fall, Audible recorded and released Crudup's performance in Harry Clarke as an audio play, now available for download. The Audible production also includes David Cale’s Obie Award-winning solo play, Lillian, performed by the author.
