The world premiere of The Antipodes, the new play by Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Baker with direction by Lila Neugebauer, extends for the fourth time. Baker’s newest work, which is set in a writers’ room for an ambitious television project, opened to positive reviews on April 23.
The production began performances April 4, and will now play through June 11. Performances take place in The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center, located at 480 West 42nd Street, New York.
The cast is made up of Phillip James Brannon (Tiny Beautiful Things), Josh Charles (The Good Wife), Josh Hamilton (Madam Secretary), Danny Mastrogiorgio (Gotham), Danny McCarthy (Prison Break), Emily Cass McDonnell (Mercury Fur), Brian Miskell (The Flick), Will Patton (Fool For Love), and Nicole Rodenburg (Venus in Fur).
Similarly to Baker’s earlier play John, of which very little was revealed in Signature Theatre produciton notes, the description for The Antipodes reads simply: “A play about people telling stories about telling stories.“ Scroll through production photos below:
