Harold Perrineau, Jr., Zeljko Ivanek and Glenn Fitzgerald will star in Joe Penhall's Blue/Orange at Off Broadway's Atlantic Theatre Company, beginning Nov. 6 toward a Nov. 24 opening. Neil Pepe directs.
Perrineau ("Oz," "Smoke") plays a troubled young black man in London being cared for, and argued over, by a green doctor (Fitzgerald) and a supervising psychiatrist (Ivanek).
Fitzgerald won attention for his central role in Kenneth Lonergan's Lobby Hero. Ivanek, a stage veteran, has appeared in such Broadway productions as Loot, Two Shakespearean Actors and The Glass Menagerie, opposite Julie Harris.
The UK production of Blue/Orange won an Olivier Award and Evening Standard Award. Penhall's other works include Some Voices and Pale Horse, though none have received the acclaim of B/O. The design team includes Robert Brill (sets); Brian MacDevitt (lighting) and Laura Bauer (costumes).
Tickets are $45.00. The Atlantic Theater Company is located at 336 West 20th Street (between Eighth and Ninth Avenues). Call Tele-Charge at (212) 239-6200. —By Robert Simonson
