A Clockwork Orange Will Arrive Off-Broadway in October

News   A Clockwork Orange Will Arrive Off-Broadway in October
 
The Hubris Theatre Company is set to present a stage adaptation of Anthony Burgess' haunting classic novel, "A Clockwork Orange," penned by the author himself. Set in a dystopian future, the story follows Alex and his ultra-violent gang as they roam the streets terrorizing innocent people.

Helmed by Hubris founder John Bateman, A Clockwork Orange begins Oct. 1 at the Roy Arias Stage 7 in Times Square. Performances are set to run through Oct. 31.

The cast is led by Alex Tisierre, who plays the charismatic and terrifying street criminal Alex. He is joined by Jimmy Betts, Steven Bono Jr., Samuel Finn Cutler, Luke Wehner, Donal Brophy, Katey Parker, Jim DiMunno, Daniel O'Rielly, JeVon Blackwell, Sarah Grace, Chris Krause, Aaron Wineman and Mark Ford.

Burgess' novel was adapted into a full stage production by Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre Company in 1994. A musical version was also staged in London in 2011. Earlier, Burgess' unique story was turned into an Oscar-nominated film by Stanley Kubrick in 1971 starring Malcolm McDowell as Alex. The landmark film has since gained cult status, and McDowell returned to the role briefly for a benefit reading at Manhattan's Theatre Club in 1997.

The Off-Broadway staging's creative team includes Nicholas Civitello as assistant director, Kimberly Gray as co-producer and assistant costume designer, Kate Szekely as stage manager, Frank Alfano Jr. as fight coordinator, Scott Tedmon-Jones as set designer, Jon Can Coskunses as head costume designer, Sarah Huyck as lighting designer and Michael Blouin as assistant fight coordinator.
