Pullman and Roberts are Albee's Peter and Jerry Off-Broadway Beginning Oct. 19

News   Pullman and Roberts are Albee's Peter and Jerry Off-Broadway Beginning Oct. 19 Bill Pullman, Dallas Roberts and Johanna Day star in the New York premiere of Edward Albee's Peter and Jerry, which begins performances at Off-Broadway's Second Stage Theatre Oct. 19.

The Albee work, which will officially open Nov. 11, kicks off the new Second Stage Theatre season. It is scheduled to conclude its already-extended run Dec. 30. Pam MacKinnon, who staged the show's Hartford Stage premiere in 2004, directs here as well.

Albee's Central Park-set one-act The Zoo Story (penned in 1958) now gets a backstory with Homelife — a peek into the character Peter's morning before Zoo Story takes place. Homelife and The Zoo Story comprise the work now titled Peter and Jerry.

Pullman (The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?) stars as Peter with Roberts (A Number) as Jerry and Day (Proof) as Peter's wife Ann. Day also appeared in the original Hartford run.

The design team includes Neil Patel (scenic), Theresa Squire (costume) and Kevin Adams (lighting).

The production is just one of a number of works by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Albee to be seen on stages this season. The playwright — who turned 80 on March 12 — will also see his Me, Myself and I at the McCarter Theatre, The Sandbox and The American Dream at the Cherry Lane Theatre and Occupant at the Signature Theatre Company. Tickets to Peter and Jerry at Second Stage Theatre, 307 West 43rd Street (off Eighth Ave.), can be purchased by calling (212) 246-4422 or online at 2ST.com.
