In Gary, nominated for 7 Tony Awards® including Best Play, 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. Two very lowly servants are charged with cleaning up the bodies. It’s only the year 400 – but it feels like the end of the world.
Three-time Tony Award® winner Nathan Lane and 2019 Tony Award nominees Kristine Nielsen and Julie White stared in the world premiere of Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus, the new comedy by Pulitzer Prize finalist and MacArthur Fellow Taylor Mac on Broadway. Directed by five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe, previews began at Broadway’s Booth Theatre on Monday, March 11, 2019. Gary‘s official opening night was Sunday, April 21, 2019, and it played its final performance on Sunday, June 16, 2019.
