Off-Broadway’s Transport Group has announced that it will kick off its 2017–2018 season with Eugene O’Neill’s epic drama, Strange Interlude, performed by David Greenspan—and only Greenspan. The solo production of O’Neill’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play will begin performances October 6.
Greenspan, who has performed as an acclaimed solo artist in the past, will perform the play in its entirety—six hours, including two 15-minute intermissions and a 30-minute meal break between parts one and two. Theatregoers can opt to purchase dinner with their tickets, which will consist of locally sourced meals provided for by The Green Grape catering company.
In Strange Interlude, a professor’s daughter, grieving the loss of her fiancé in the war, embarks on a series of love affairs and into an unhappy marriage. The play debuted on Broadway in 1927 and was revived in 1962 and again in 1984.
Performances of the Transport Group’s Strange Interlude will take place at the Irondale Theater Center in Brooklyn through November 18.
In spring 2018, Transport Group will co-produce Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke with Classic Stage Company. The Off-Broadway company will also present two editions of the Anne L. Bernstein Concert Series, with artists to be announced at a later date.
