Directed by two-time Obie Award winner Leigh Silverman, previews will begin Nov. 15 prior to an official opening Dec. 9. The limited engagement will continue through Dec. 29 at Playwrights Horizons’ Mainstage Theater (416 West 42nd Street).
The new work is described as such: "Watson (Mr. Conlee): trusty sidekick to Sherlock Holmes; loyal engineer who built Bell’s first telephone; unstoppable super-computer that became reigning 'Jeopardy!' champ; amiable techno-dweeb who, in the present day, is just looking for love. Four constant companions become one in this brilliantly witty, time-jumping, loving tribute (and cautionary tale) dedicated to the people – and machines – upon which we all depend."
Single tickets start at $70. A special online pre-sale will begin Oct. 15 at noon. For the first 24 hours only, $40 discount tickets (regularly $70) can be purchased exclusively via Playwrights Horizons’ Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/PlaywrightsHorizons.
Beginning Oct. 16 at noon, $70 single tickets may be purchased online via www.TicketCentral.com, by phone at (212) 279-4200 and in person at the Ticket Central Box Office, 416 West 42nd Street (between Ninth & Tenth Avenues).
