Acclaimed U.S. Premiere of Blackbird Extends to June

News   Acclaimed U.S. Premiere of Blackbird Extends to June Manhattan Theatre Club's critically acclaimed production of David Harrower's Olivier Award-winning Blackbird, which opened April 10, has been extended through June 10 at New York City Center Stage I.

Like hungry crows, commercial producers are circling the property, which earned raves. Jeff Daniels and Alison Pill star in the American premiere.

Two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Love! Valour! Compassion!) directs.

According to MTC, "This powerful, volatile piece begins when Una shows up unexpectedly at the office of Ray, forcing Ray to come to terms with the effects of their relationship. Una pulls him into an encounter that is gripping, surprising and utterly unforgettable."

The Scottish playwright was inspired to write the play when he read about a man who traveled abroad to meet a young woman he first encountered on the internet.

The performance schedule (through April 29) is Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM, Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM, Sunday at 7 PM; (May 1-June 10) Tuesday-Saturday at 8 PM, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM. Tickets are $75 and are on sale through June 10. Tickets can be reserved by calling CityTix at (212) 581-1212.
