Tony-winning playwright John Guare's Nantucket Sleigh Ride, currently in previews Off-Broadway at Lincoln Center Theater's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater, will open March 18.
The production features Tony and Emmy winner John Larroquette, Tony nominees Will Swenson and Douglas Sills, Clea Alsip, Tina Benko, Adam Chanler-Berat, Jordan Gelber, Germán Jaramillo, Grace Rex, and Stacey Sargeant. Tony winner Jerry Zaks directs.
Though "Nantucket Sleigh Ride" is an old whaling term (referring to sailors racing across the ocean on harpooned whales), Guare’s play takes place far from the Arctic waters. Larroquette plays a New York playwright-turned-venture capitalist trying to remember the events that occurred on an island three decades prior. His quest leads him to an unexpected whirlpool involving a giant lobster, Roman Polanski, a pornography ring, Walt Disney, Jorge Luis Borges, and more.
