The Mobius Group, which success Off-Off-Broadway last fall with a revival of Warren Leight's The Loop, will mount a newly-revised version of Eric Bogosian's Scenes from The New World. The play will run at the New 42nd Street Theatre March 10-26.
The 1981 Scenes was originally commissioned by Playwrights Horizons, though that theatre never staged the play. Bogosian, who is best known for solo shows such as Sex, Drug and Rock and Roll and Talk Radio, has in recent years taken to writing more traditionally structured plays such as subUrbia and Griller. The playwright and actor has worked with Mobius to revise Scenes. The play's 21 characters will be played by a company of 11.
Featured in the cast are Gha'il Rhodes Benjamin, Cynthia Carrol, Michelle Cordero, Jen Davis, Tyler Flagg, Rick Gradone, Zac Jones, Henry Lopez, Mark Lynch, Paul Marcarelli and Jeff Sugerman. Steve Cosson, a Boris Sagan Fellow at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, will make his New York debut as director.
Tickets are $12. The New 42nd Street Theatre is located at 348 W. 42Nd. St. For more information, call (212) 358-5820.
