Anthony Clarvoe's techie black comedy, Crtl+Alt+Del, will have its New York City debut Off-Broadway this fall, director Ethan McSweeny told Playbill On-Line. No theatre, dates or cast have been established.
Crtl+Alt+Del received its world premiere at San Jose Repertory Theatre Oct. 20-Nov. 18, 2001. It then played the George Street Playhouse in New Jersey this past spring.
In Crtl+Alt+Del, a whiz kid with the next best thing in the industry joins forces with a new technology leader to create what amounts to a billion dollar house of cards. The two try to survive the shockwaves, real and imagined, that threaten to topple their new product's success.
Native San Franciscan Clarvoe is the author of four Drama-Logue winners: Let's Play Two, Ambition Facing West, The Living and Pick Up Ax.
McSweeny made his directorial splash with John Logan's hit Never the Sinner. Currently resident director at New Jersey's George Street Playhouse, he helmed regional productions of Wit (Pittsburgh), The Beauty Queen of Leenane (Houston) and The Triumph of Love (Washington, DC). His most high profile gig thus far was the Broadway revival of The Best Man. — By Robert Simonson
