24 Hours Nixed at NYTW for All the Wrong Reasons

News   24 Hours Nixed at NYTW for All the Wrong Reasons New York Theatre Workshop has replaced the previously announced production of 24 Hours Are Not a Day with the world premiere of John Fugelsang's All the Wrong Reasons: A True Story of Neo-Nazis, Drug Smuggling, and Undying Love.

Pam MacKinnon directs the work written and performed by Fugelsang that will begin previews March 23 and open April 15 at the downtown Manhattan company's home.

René Pollesch's 24 Hours Are Not a Day — which was to make its American premiere and close out the 2006-2007 season — has been postponed. A future production date "has not yet been determined," according to a release. No reason was given for the change.

In All the Wrong Reasons, "a nun from the Deep South leaves her African convent and marries a Franciscan brother from Brooklyn. The child they promised God they would never, never have struggles with existential morality in a fiercely funny tale of love and blasphemy; depression and the drug war; life, death, and how to offer sexual favors to famous Nazis on the air."

NYTW currently presents the world premiere of All That I Will Ever Be by Alan Ball through March 11. Jo Bonney directs the first new stage work penned by "Six Feet Under" creator in more than a dozen years.

Tickets to All the Wrong Reasons, at NYTW, 79 East Fourth Street, will go on sale Feb. 28 through (212) 239-6200. For more information visit the website at www.nytw.org.
