Garden of Earthly Delights, which is based on the Hieronymus Bosch triptych, was originally scheduled to close March 1. Representatives for the production have announced that the work has now extended its Off-Broadway engagement an additional three months through May 31. An international tour is also planned.
Garden began performances at the Minetta Lane Theatre Nov. 8 and officially opened Off-Broadway Nov. 19.
The 70-minute production — featuring movement, music and aerial effects — brings to life Hieronymus Bosch's densely populated painting, depicting "the progression of sin from creation to hell, as well as a journey from innocence to chaos."
The cast includes Todd Anderson, Sophie Bortolussi, Daniel Clifton, Marjorie Folkman, General McArthur Hambrick (Cats), Whitney V. Hunter, Gabby Malone, Jennifer Nugent, Matt Rivera (Movin' Out), Jenny Sandler, Isadora Wolfe. Musicians for the production include Wayne Hankin (winds), Egil Rostad (cello) and Arthur Solari (music director, percussion).
Garden of Earthly Delights has a Drama Desk Award-winning score by Richard Peaslee, scenic and lighting design by Tony Award winner Christopher Akerlind, costume design by Tony nominee Jane Greenwood and aerial design provided by Flying By Foy.
