Bright Colors and Bold Patterns to Be Filmed for Broadway HD
The comedy extends its run for a week, featuring the return of its author and original star Drew Droege.
Bright Colors and Bold Patterns has been extended for a fourth and final time through April 9, beyond its previously announced April 1 closing date at SoHo Playhouse. The show's author and original star Drew Droege will return to the production for its last week of performances from April 5-9, with the final performance scheduled to be filmed for Broadway HD.
The BroadwayHD production will be produced by Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley and directed by David Horn, executive producer of PBS's Great Performances for WNET. The multicamera capture will deliver the live performance specifically for a streaming audience, bringing this unique performance to life for viewing to subscribers anytime, anywhere.
Jeff Hiller, who currently stars in the production, plays his final performance on April 1. Directed by Michael Urie, Bright Colors and Bold Patterns is described as follows: "Josh and Brennan are about to get married in Palm Springs on a lovely Saturday afternoon. However, the night before becomes a drunken, drug-fueled riot, because their friend Gerry has arrived, furious that their invitation says 'Please refrain from wearing bright colors or bold patterns.' In the struggle for equality, what do we really want? What do we lose? And is there any cocaine left?"
Bright Colors and Bold Patterns was originally presented at VS Theatre in Los Angeles and directed by Molly Prather. It was remounted at Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles and transferred to the Barrow Street Theatre in 2016.
