AT THE WESTSIDE THEATRE
ACCLAIMED, AWARD-WINNING SOLO SHOW
WILL PLAY TWO NEWLY SCHEDULED PERFORMANCES ON MARCH 21 AND 28
New York (3/10/2011) – Producer Daryl Roth announced today that Daniel Beaty’s award-winning solo show Through the Night will extend its run to play two additional performances on Monday, March 21st and Monday, March 28th at the Westside Theatre (407 W. 43rd Street), before ending its limited engagement.
This run follows on the heels of its acclaimed production at the Union Square Theatre, which played its final performance on Sunday, December 5. Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, Through the Night officially opened on September 26, 2010 to rave reviews.
“This is an empowering and inspirational play that audiences have connected to in a profound way since its very first performance,” Ms. Roth said. “It is a work that deserves to be seen by as many people as possible.”
Six characters. Three generations. One unforgettable performance. Mr. Beaty portrays an entire cast of characters, from inquisitive boy to elder preacher, spinning a tale in which lives collide to show how hope, faith and love can pull anyone Through the Night. The New York Times calls it, “a thing of beauty, wit, grit and piercing lyricism.”
Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, Through the Night’s creative team includes Alexander V. Nichols (Scenic, Projection, and Lighting Design) and Lindsay Jones (Original Music, Sound Design). Through the Night is produced in association with Jana Robbins.
The Shine the Light Project, the educational outreach program formed to underwrite student tickets to the Through the Night, continues to seek funding from foundations, corporations, and private donors, and will continue accepting school groups from local Title 1 schools for the duration of the run. Contributions to Shine the Light can be made by visiting throughthenightonstage.com and clicking on the “Education” tab.
Tickets, priced at $39 ($25 with valid student I.D.) are on sale now via Telecharge.com / (212) 239-6200. Through the Night plays Monday nights at 8:00 P.M. at the Westside Theatre’s Downstairs stage, where Love, Loss, and What I Wore plays Tuesday through Sunday.
