Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus on Broadway
Three-time Tony Award® winner Nathan Lane and two-time Tony Award winner Andrea Martin will star this season on Broadway in the world premiere of, Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus, the new comedy by Pulitzer Prize finalist and MacArthur Fellow, Taylor Mac. Directed by five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe, Gary is set just after the blood-soaked conclusion of William Shakespeare’s first tragedy, Titus Andronicus.
In Gary, Taylor Mac’s singular world view intersects with Shakespeare’s first tragedy, Titus Andronicus. In Mac’s extraordinary new play, set during the fall of the Roman Empire, the years of bloody battles are over. The civil war has ended. The country has been stolen by madmen, and there are casualties everywhere. And two very lowly servants – Lane and Martin – are charged with cleaning up the bodies. It’s the year 400 – but it feels like the end of the world.
Three powerhouse stars. One theatrical masterpiece. The towering achievement of the Broadway season.
Best Actress Tony Award nominee Annette Bening, 2013 Tony winner Tracy Letts, and Best Featured Actor Tony nominee Benjamin Walker catapult Arthur Miller’s All My Sons to the top of every theatergoer’s must-see list, in this Tony-nominated Best Play Revival that New York Stage Review calls “as close to perfect as it can be.”
Miller’s drama about the long-hidden secret that threatens to tear apart a Midwest family in the aftermath of WWII comes to blazing new life in a shattering new staging by Tony winner Jack O’Brien. As Variety says, “It packs a wallop all its own.”
