News   The Picture of Dorian Gray to Arrive Off-Broadway Jan. 21
The new Daniel Mitura stage adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray will have its world premiere Off-Broadway at the Kirk Theatre.

Henning Hegland will stage the production based on Oscar Wilde's novel. Performances begin Jan. 21 prior to an official opening Jan. 25. The limited engagement will run through Feb. 6.

The cast includes Kaolin Bass, Christina Broccolini, Leif Huckman, Vayu O'Donnell, Wil Petre and Jade Rothman.

According to press notes, "The young, impressionable, and stunningly beautiful Dorian Gray sells his soul for eternal youth. Convinced by the dangerously clever aristocrat Lord Henry Wotton that youth and pleasure are to be valued above all else, and supported by the devotion of the artist who painted the fatal portrait, Basil Hallward, Dorian Gray dives into a life of hedonistic abandon, falling in love with and then quickly abandoning young actress Sibyl Vane, and poisoning the lives of countless others, leading them down to darkness with his strange and dangerous charm. While his body is immune to the ravages of time and sin, his soul is not, and by the end Dorian is faced with the ultimate choice: does he save the picture, or save himself? Or have the two become inextricably linked?"

Designing Dorian Gray are Tania Bijlani (set design), Ciera Wells (costume design), Joe Novak (lighting design). N.O.M.A.D.S. and Adam Blanshay produce.

Tickets, priced $18, are available by phoning (212) 279-4200 or by visiting TicketCentral. The Kirk Theatre is located at 410 West 42nd Street on Theatre Row.
