Gabriel's American Premiere Gets Two Added Weeks Off-Broadway

News   Gabriel's American Premiere Gets Two Added Weeks Off-Broadway
 
Atlantic Theater Company has extended the run of the critically acclaimed American premiere production of Olivier Award nominee Moira Buffini's Gabriel, about a stranger washed up on a beach, now running to June 20.

The limited Off-Broadway engagement, originally scheduled through June 6, began previews on April 23 before opening to critical acclaim on May 13. It plays at Atlantic's Linda Gross Theater, 336 W. 20th Street.

Gabriel, according to ATC notes, "is set around a largely forgotten moment in British history — the German occupation of the Channel Islands during World War II. A naked young man washes up on a Guernsey beach. Unnervingly handsome and fluent in both German and English, he has no recollection of who he is — patriot or Nazi…innocent or madman. Gabriel explores the heart of memory, identity and imagination, as well as the lies people tell themselves and each other to make the darkness light again."

Directed by David Esbjornson, Gabriel features Patricia Conolly, Lisa Emery, Tony Award nominee Zach Grenier, Lee Aaron Rosen, Samantha Soule and Libby Woodbridge.

Gabriel plays Tuesday through Friday at 8 PM, Wednesday at 2 PM, Saturday at 2 PM and 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.
