Tony nominee Jeremy Herrin will direct the new Broadway production.
Noises Off is a classic show-within-a-show comedy that follows the goings-on during the final dress rehearsal of a comedy called Nothing On — and all that can go wrong does. The play made its Broadway premiere in 1983 and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play. The original production ran more than 550 performances.
The creative team for Noises Off includes Derek McLane (sets), Michael Krass (costumes), Jane Cox (lighting), and Christopher Cronin (sound).
