The Park Avenue Armory will premiere Obie Award winner Christopher Shinn’s new adaptation of Ödön von Horváth’s Judgment Day as part of its newly announced 2019 season. The Armory-commissioned production, directed by Richard Jones (who returns to the Manhattan venue after last year’s The Hairy Ape), will run December 5, 2019–January 11, 2020 at the Drill Hall.
As previously reported, the Drill Hall will first host the New York premiere of The Lehman Trilogy. Ben Power’s adaptation of Stefano Massini’s play will begin March 22 under the direction of Sam Mendes.
Also heading to the Drill Hall: the North American premiere of Heiner Goebbels’ Everything That Happened and Would Happen (June 3–9), Hito Steyerl’s latest installation Drill—an exploration of power structures and inequalities (June 20–July 21), Satoshi Miyagi’s Buddhism-influenced production of Antigone (September 25–October 6), and the New York arrival of Theaster Gates’ Chicago-based “Black Artists Retreat” (October 11–12).
The Armory’s intimate Recital Series also returns next year, beginning January 6–10 with baritone Benjamin Appl. Tenor Ilker Arcayürek will follow February 11 and 14, as well as the Metropolitan Opera’s Linemann Young Artists April 22 and 24, the Dudok Quartet Amsterdam September 19 and 21, soprano Barbara Hannigan October 15 and 17, and violinist Leila Josefowicz November 21 and 22.
