Matt Doyle Added to New York Premiere of A Clockwork Orange
Alexandra Spencer-Jones's critically acclaimed stage production of A Clockwork Orange has announced casting for its upcoming New York premiere at New World Stages. The play will begin previews September 2 in advance of a September 25 opening and will run for 16 weeks through January 6, 2018.
Joining the previously announced London star Jonno Davies — who makes his New York Stage debut in the lead role of Alex DeLarge — is Matt Doyle (Sweeney Todd) as Georgie, Sean Patrick Higgins (Streetcar Named Desire at Yale Rep) as Dim, Brian Lee Huynh (War Horse) as Frank / Dr. Brodsky, Timothy Sekk (Dreyfus in Rehearsal) as Chaplain/Deltoid, Aleksander Varadian (Women Beware Women) as Marty/Warder, Ashley Robinson (Sunset Boulevard in West End) as Minister / Old Woman, Jimmy Brooks (Blue Bloods) as F-Me Pumps / Governor, Misha Osherovich (Omen Road to Starville) as Pete, and Jordan Bondurant (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder) as a swing.
Based on Anthony Burgess's 1962 novel, the play is described as follows in a press release: "A Clockwork Orange lures audiences into a glass-edged, testosterone-filled underworld of a dystopian future. The explosive story of little Alex and his rebellious gang of Droogs is a groundbreaking classic of orgiastic ultraviolence and sexuality. As hauntingly relevant today as when Burgess's book first published in 1962 and when Stanley Kubrick's groundbreaking film caused a stir in 1971, A Clockwork Orange is an unapologetic celebration of the human condition."
A Clockwork Orange is produced off-Broadway by Glynis Henderson Productions, Martian Entertainment, and Matthew Gregory for ABA UK. The production features lighting design by James Baggaley, sound design by Emma Wilk, costume coordination by Jennifer A. Jacob, and casting by Stewart/Whitley.
