The U.S. premiere of Wallace Shawn’s Evening at the Talk House opens February 16, starring two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick along with the playwright himself. The New Group production began performances January 31 at the Signature Theatre, where it is scheduled to run through March 12 .
Evening at the Talk House arrives in New York following a world-premiere staging at the National Theatre in London in 2015. The production is directed by New Group artistic director Scott Elliott, and performances take place in the Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at the Pershing Square Signature Center.
Rounding out the cast are Jill Eikenberry, John Epperson, Larry Pine, Claudia Shear, Annapurna Sriram, and Michael Tucker.
In Evening at the Talk House, everyone is invited to join the 10th anniversary celebration of Robert (Broderick)'s under-appreciated theatrical masterpiece, Midnight in a Clearing with Moon and Stars. “To recall that wonderful creative atmosphere, which we all miss so much, Nellie (Eikenberry) will host this celebration at the old haunt, the Talk House (which, despite everything, remains open). Please come. We need each other,” read production notes from the New Group.
The staging features scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Jeff Mahshie, and lighting design by Jennifer Tipton. Production supervisor is Production Core, production stage manager is Valerie A. Peterson, and casting is by Judy Henderson, CSA.
