Pearl Theater Company's 2013-14 Season to Feature Works by Terrence McNally, George Bernard Shaw, Jean-Paul Sartre and More
By Carey Purcell
The Pearl Theater Company, the Off-Broadway troupe that mounts classic plays and new works addressing classical themes, has announced its 2013-14 season.
The season will begin Sept. 3 with George Bernard Shaw's You Never Can Tell, followed by the world premiere of And Away We Go by Terrence McNally (Master Class, Ragtime). McNally's play was delayed earlier this year, due to a spring shortfall in fundraising, which Playbill previously reported. The financial troubles have since been resolved, according to The New York Times, and the play is scheduled for Nov. 12-Dec. 15.
Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit will run Feb. 25, 2014-March 30, 2014, and The Rivals, by Richard Brinsley Sheridan, will run April 22-May 25.
Board Chair Allison Cooke Kellogg said in a statement, "Since our special appeal this winter, nearly 1,000 donors contributed over $400,000 to support The Pearl and the outstanding work of its Resident Acting Company. The incredible outpouring of support from first-time donors, long-time supporters, and the Board of Trustees was a clear indication that the work being done by The Pearl is necessary and valued by the community."
"The Pearl is moving forward with its 30th Anniversary season thanks to the tremendous passion of Pearl supporters during our first year in the new theatre at 555 West 42nd Street," said artistic director J. R. Sullivan.
