Signature Theatre is pleased to announce an additional four-week extension for the world premiere of OLD HATS, created and performed by Tony Award winners Bill Irwin and David Shiner, with music by and featuring Nellie McKay, and directed by Tina Landau. This is the third extension for the production, which will now play through Thursday, May 9. The production opened on Monday, March 4 on The Irene Diamond Stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues). Tickets during the extension weeks are $75 each.
2003-04 Playwright-in-Residence Bill Irwin reunites with fellow clown David Shiner for a new work combining their inimitable magic, slapstick, and hilarity. Using music, technology, and movement, plus other tricks up their sleeves, Irwin and Shiner create another wild and remarkable outing of theatre for a new generation of audiences. Signature is proud to present this dynamic duo’s first collaboration since the smash Broadway hit Fool Moon.
The design team includes G.W. Mercier (Scenic and Costume Design), Peter Kaczorowski (Lighting Design), John Gromada (Sound Design), Wendall K. Harrington (Projection Design), Erin Kennedy Lunsford (Wig and Make-Up Design), and Steve Cuiffo (Magic Consultant). David H. Lurie is the Production Stage Manager.
