Off-Broadway Revival of Pulitzer Winner The Flick to Close in January

News   Off-Broadway Revival of Pulitzer Winner The Flick to Close in January
 
The Off-Broadway revival of Annie Baker's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama The Flick will end its run Jan. 10, 2016, at the Barrow Street Theatre. The critically acclaimed play opened May 18, with a new cast stepping in Sept. 1. 

The staging features Kyle Beltran, Brian Miskell, Nicole Rodenburg and Danny Wolohan. 

The Barrow Street run also reunites members of the original creative team, including Tony-winning director Sam Gold, David Zinn (scenic and costume design), Jane Cox (lighting design) and Bray Poor (sound design).

The Flick premiered in 2013 at Playwrights Horizons to critical acclaim; set in an indie New England cinema, it is a study of boredom, yearning and dysfunction, as told through the eyes of the movie-house workers. The play is set to receive its Chicago premiere with Steppenwolf Theatre Company beginning Feb. 4, 2016.

Baker is also the playwright of John, Circle Mirror Transformation, Body Awareness, The Aliens and an adaptation of Uncle Vanya for Soho Rep.

Here's how the play is billed: "In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35 millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world."
