Posterity stars Hamish Linklater (Seminar, Much Ado About Nothing) and John Noble ("The Lord of the Rings," "The Good Wife") and will continue through April 5 at The Linda Gross Theater. The official opening night is slated for March 15.
In Posterity, "Norway's most celebrated sculptor (Linklater) is commissioned to create the last official portrait of the country's most famous writer, but Henrik Ibsen (Noble) proves to be an irascible, contentious sitter, as the two men wage war over both his legacy and his likeness. Doug Wright explores the nature of artistic success and the fear of being forgotten."
The Linda Gross Theater is located at 336 West 20th Street. Visit Atlantictheater.org for tickets and more information.
