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 only the year 400 – but it feels like the end of the world.
Three-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane and two-time Tony Award winner Andrea Martin will star 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 will begin at Broadway’s Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street) on Tuesday, March 5, 2019. Opening night is set for Thursday, April 11, 2019.
