Manhattan Theatre Club’s New York premiere of GOLDEN AGE, the third play in Terrence McNally’s opera trilogy, directed by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie, has extended one week at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street) due to popular demand. Tickets for the limited engagement are now on sale through Sunday, January 13.
Performances for GOLDEN AGE have regularly been selling out. Ticket buyers are encouraged to explore dates during the extension (January 7-13), but there is scattered availability for performances through January 6.
GOLDEN AGE stars Dierdre Friel (Dogfight), Coco Monroe (New York debut), George Morfogen (Ivanov), two-time Emmy and two-time Tony Award winner Bebe Neuwirth (Chicago), Emmy Award nominee Lee Pace ( “Pushing Daisies”), Ethan Phillips (November), Lorenzo Pisoni (Humor Abuse), Will Rogers (Unnatural Acts), and Eddie Kaye Thomas (The Submission).
Its opening night of Vincenzo Bellini’s (Emmy Award nominee Lee Pace) new opera I Puritani in Paris, and the Italian composer is determined to win the adulation of not only his audience, but his colleagues and rivals as well. When the curtain falls, will a thunderous ovation cement his prominence? Or has Bellini unwittingly composed his own swan song?
Blending 21st century language with the timeless beauty of 19th century bel canto opera, Terrence McNally’s new play portrays the final act of an artist whose desire for greatness has eclipsed all else.
