The Pearl Theatre Company’s revival of A Taste of Honey, by Shelagh Delaney, officially opens September 18. The production, helmed by Tony nominee Austin Pendleton, marks the first Off-Broadway staging of the work in 35 years.
Following an extension announcement, performances are now set to run through October 30 at The Pearl Theatre. Previews began September 6.
“When I saw A Taste of Honey, on Broadway, I was unmoored,” said Pendleton in an earlier statement. “I'd never seen anything like it. The energy of this play is absolutely unique. It's so buoyant, and it's so frightening, it's so funny, it's so dark, and it seems to have been written in one joyous, troubled exhalation.”
The Tony nominee for Little Foxes directs a cast made up of Rebekah Brockman as Jo, John Evans Reese as Geoff, Rachel Botchan as Helen, Bradford Cover as Peter and Ade Otukoya as Jimmie.
The creative team includes Harry Feiner (sets), Barbara A. Bell (costumes), Eric Southern (lights), Jane Shaw (sound) and April Ann Kline (production stage manager).
Tickets can be purchased by visiting pearltheatre.org or calling (212) 563-9261. The Pearl Theatre is located at 555 West 42nd Street, New York.
