The U.S. premiere of Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen has extended again and will now play through March 25 at Off-Broadway’s Atlantic Theater Company. The Olivier Award-winning Royal Court Theatre production had previously sold out its New York run before opening to positive reviews February 5.
Performances of Hangmen began January 18, and were previously extended through March 7. Though no official announcement has been made, the production is rumored to be eyeing a Broadway run.
In Hangmen, local British hangman Harry (played by Game of Thrones' Mark Addy) finds himself without a job on the day that hanging has been abolished. In the wake of this historic decision, a string of events lead to both comic and tragic consequences.
Matthew Dunster directs a cast that also includes Owen Campbell (As You Are), Billy Carter (Shining City), Maxwell Caulfield (An Inspector Calls), Johnny Flynn (Lovesick, Jerusalem), Gaby French (Off-Broadway debut), Gilles Geary (Off-Broadway debut), Richard Hollis (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), John Horton (The Language Archive, Amadeus), David Lansbury (War Horse, Michael Clayton), Sally Rogers (Blue Heart, The Bill), and Reece Shearsmith (High Rise, The League of Gentlemen).
Flynn, Rogers, and Shearsmith appeared in the original London cast. The show debuted at the Royal Court before transferring to the West End for a hit run.
Tickets for the Off-Broadway extension are now on sale at atlantictheater.org, by phone at (866) 811-4111, and in person at the Linda Gross Theater box office, located at 336 West 20th Street, New York City.
