The Object Lesson Extends at New York Theatre Workshop
Geoff Sobelle's immersive solo show will offer two extra weeks of performances.
New York Theatre Workshop has announced a two-week extension for Geoff Sobelle's The Object Lesson, now running through March 19. Directed by David Neumann, the production began previews on January 31 in advance of a February 9 opening.
The Object Lesson is described as follows: "This tactile installation turns the theater into a storage facility of gargantuan proportion where audiences are free to roam and sift through the clutter. Sobelle transforms this makeshift attic into a space of reflection and wonder as he unpacks our relationship to everyday objects: breaking, buying, finding, fixing, giving, losing, winning, trading, selling, stealing, storing, collecting, cluttering, clearing, packing up, passing on, buried under…a world of things. The Object Lesson is a meditation on the stuff we cling to and the crap we leave behind." Scenic installation design is by Steven Dufala.
A $25 day-of ticket rush is available for young people, seniors, artists, and Lower East Side residents. Rush tickets are subject to availability and are sold cash-only, limit two per person.
Following The Object Lesson, New York Theatre Workshop's 2016-17 season will conclude with Mfoniso Udofia's Sojourners and Her Portmanteau, presented in repertory and directed by Ed Sylvanus Iskandar.
