Wings, Arthur Kopit's unique play about a former wingwalker grounded by a stroke, opened Oct. 24 in an Off-Broadway production starring Tony Award nominee Jan Maxwell and directed by Tony winner John Doyle (Sweeney Todd). The Second Stage Theatre run began Oct. 5.
Kopit's 1978 Tony-nominated play is billed as "a journey through the eye of Emily Stilson, a 1920s wingwalker who discovers her life's journey is a series of courageous adventures, proving that even when her mental self fails her, her daredevil spirit proves unflappable."
Wings also features Teagle F. Bougere, Beth Dixon, Adam Heller, January LaVoy, Anne L. Nathan and Michael Warner.
Here is a look at the opening night:
