By Kenneth Jones
Due to time lost during Hurricane Sandy the week of Oct. 29, Manhattan Theatre Club's New York City premiere of Golden Age, Terrence McNally's play about the world of composer Vincenzo Bellini, will begin previews Nov. 15, two days later than initially announced.
Performances play Off-Broadway at New York City Center – Stage I at 131 W. 55th Street. Opening night remains Dec. 4.
In order to reschedule tickets for the canceled performances, ticket holders should return to their original point of sale.
Golden Age — by four-time Tony Award winner McNally — is directed by Tony winner Walter Bobbie. The limited engagement stars Tony Award winner Richard Easton, Dierdre Friel, Coco Monroe, two-time Emmy and two-time Tony Award winner Bebe Neuwirth, Emmy Award nominee Lee Pace as Bellini, Ethan Phillips, Lorenzo Pisoni, Will Rogers and Eddie Kaye Thomas.
According to MTC, "Its opening night of Vincenzo Bellini's new opera I Puritani in Paris, and the Italian composer is determined to win the adulation of not only his audience, but his colleagues and rivals as well. When the curtain falls, will a thunderous ovation cement his prominence? Or has Bellini unwittingly composed his own swan song? Blending 21st-century language with the timeless beauty of 19th century bel canto opera, Terrence McNally's new play portrays the final act of an artist whose desire for greatness has eclipsed all else."
The creative team includes Santo Loquasto (scenic design), Jane Greenwood (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Ryan Rumery (sound design) and Tom Watson (hair & wig design).
