New York, NY (March 20, 2015) – Producer Kevin McCollum announced today that Broadway’s Hand to God will (yet again) offer early theatergoers the chance to catch this new American play at a special price: $37.50 per ticket, in recognition of the 37 (or 38) productions opening on Broadway during the 2014-2015 Season, depending on whether or not Wolf Hall counts as one or two productions. A limited quantity of select mezzanine seats at this special price will be on-sale beginning Monday, March 23rd for performances from March 23rd through April 6th and must be purchased during a limited one week on-sale window (through 11:00 PM on Sunday, March 29th). There is also a limit of 4 tickets per purchase, and tickets will be available online, via phone or at the box office.
(The recently announced on-sale window for $33 special pricing for select previews performances expires on Sunday, March 22nd at 11:00PM, as previously announced.)
The new American play Hand to God will open on Broadway on April 7, 2015 at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street), marking the Broadway debuts of playwright Robert Askins and director Moritz von Stuelpnagel. For more info, visit www.HandToGodBroadway.com.
The hilarious and provocative Hand to God centers on shy, inquisitive student Jason, who finds an outlet for his burgeoning creativity at the Christian Puppet Ministry in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas. Jason’s complicated relationships with the town pastor, the school bully, the girl next door and—most especially—his mother are thrown into further upheaval when Jason’s hand puppet Tyrone—once soft-spoken—takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. As Tyrone’s influence over Jason steadily grows, Hand to God explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us.
Hand to God features Steven Boyer as Jason/Tyrone; Geneva Carr, in her Broadway debut, as Margery; Tony® Award nominee Marc Kudisch as Pastor Greg; Sarah Stiles as Jessica; and Michael Oberholtzer, in his Broadway debut, as Timothy. Boyer reprises the role for which he has been honored with an Obie Award, the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Leading Actor in a Play, the Actors’ Equity Association Clarence Derwent Award for Most Promising Newcomer, and a citation from the Drama League for Distinguished Performance, among other awards.
The design team for Hand to God includes scenic design by Beowulf Boritt, costumes by Sydney Maresca, lighting by Jason Lyons, sound by Jill BC Du Boff, puppet design by Marte Johanne Ekhougen, and fight direction by Robert Westley.
Hand to God is produced on Broadway by Kevin McCollum, whose credits include Rent, Avenue Q and In the Heights—each the winner of the Tony® Award for Best Musical; as well as The Drowsy Chaperone and Motown the Musical, among many others.
