News   PHOTO CALL: Dream of the Burning Boy, With Reed Birney and Alexandra Socha, Opens Off-Broadway
 
Roundabout Underground opened David West Read's new play, The Dream of the Burning Boy, about a high school tragedy, on March 23 following previews from Feb. 25. The Off-Broadway staging features Reed Birney, Josh Caras, Matt Dellapina, Jake O'Connor, Jessica Rothenberg, Kristie Dale Sanders and Alexandra Socha.

Evan Cabnet (Oohrah! by Atlantic Theatre Company) directs the play as part of Roundabout's initiative to nurture new plays by emerging writers. Performances play at the 62-seat Black Box Theatre underneath the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.

Here is a look at the opening night:


According to Roundabout, "In The Dream of the Burning Boy the sudden death of a high school overachiever exposes a secret that could destroy those left behind, or bring them closer together. A bittersweet story of choices made, opportunities lost, and finding the strength to move on."

This is a limited engagement through May 8. All tickets for Roundabout Underground productions are $20.

The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre is at 111 W. 46th Street in Manhattan. The Dream of the Burning Boy will play Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8 PM with Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:30 PM & Sunday evening at 7 PM.

Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300, online at www.roundaboutunderground.org. All tickets for The Dream of the Burning Boy will be issued as General Admission passes for first-come, first-served seating on the show date.
