 for “Outstanding New York Theater:
Broadway & Off–Broadway”


NEXT FALL, the new American play by Geoffrey Nauffts and directed by Sheryl Kaller, has been nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for “Outstanding New York Theater: Broadway & Off–Broadway.” The 21st Annual NYC GLAAD Media Awards will be presented on March 13, 2010 at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. For a complete list of nominees, visit GLAAD.

NEXT FALL, the new American play by Geoffrey Nauffts and directed by Sheryl Kaller, will open on Broadway on Thursday, March 11, 2010 with preview performances beginning Tuesday, February 16, 2010 at the Helen Hayes Theatre (240 West 44th Street).

NEXT FALL stars Patrick Breen as Adam, Maddie Corman as Holly,Sean Dugan as Brandon, Patrick Heusinger as Luke, Connie Ray as Arlene and Cotter Smith as Butch.

NEXT FALL had its world premiere in a Naked Angels production, opening to critical acclaim on Wednesday, June 3, 2009 at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater. NEXT FALL played a sold-out run off-Broadway, extending three times, and played through August 8th.

Geoffrey Nauffts’ NEXT FALL takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. While the play’s central story focuses on the 5-year relationship between Adam and Luke, NEXT FALL goes beyond a typical love story. This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to “believe” and what it might cost us not to.

NEXT FALL is produced on Broadway by Barbara Manocherian, Richard Willis in association with Naked Angels (Geoffrey Nauffts, Artistic Director; John Alexander, Managing Director; Andy Donald, Associate Artistic Director; Brittany O’Neill, Producer).

NEXT FALL received unanimous critical acclaim in its off-Broadway premiere…
NEXT FALL is “artful, thoughtful and very moving. Mr. Nauffts has written the kind of gently incisive, naturalistic play that rarely materializes anymore.”
Ben Brantley, New York Times

NEXT FALL “is a well-made contemporary play with ample heart and snappy humor. Nauffts has taken the measure of a painful passage in a handful of lives, depicted it with sensitivity, warmth and humor, and shaped from these tremors a drama that speaks in a quiet voice of momentous things.”
Charles Isherwood, New York Times

 “FIVE STARS – THE BEST NEW PLAY OF THE SEASON. This beautifully shaped piece, produced by Naked Angels, should ideally be seen right away.”
Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
