Second Stage theater is preparing to stream Clyde’s and to continue the trend of a home audience. The company’s current Broadway production of Lynn Nottage’s Clyde’s will broadcast its last 16 performances live, scheduled for January 4-16, 2022. Also, a limited number of tickets are available for $59 for live audiences.
Second Stage to stream Clyde’s
“In the past 18 months, we have had to turn and transfer a lot of storytelling to Zoom. This has opened a new door of opportunity for many of us who produce dramas,” Nottage told New York The Times. “We hope that those who are unwilling to come out due to the virus can enter because of this streaming media.”
After Rajiv Joseph’s Letters of Suresh proved to be successful among subscribers, the streaming program served as a pilot program. The plan did not announce future titles.
The play, which began previews November 3 and opens November 23, stars Uzo Aduba in the title role. The play features Ron Cephas Jones, Edmund Donovan, Reza Salazar, and Kara Young. It follows several people at a truck stop diner who are trying to restart their lives and stay out of trouble after spending time in prison.
Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage is composer and director Kate Whoriskey. At a sandwich shop where a truck stops provide a rebirth for its previously imprisoned kitchen staff. In this fun, touching, and pressing game, you will want to sit down at the table.
This is an example of Nottage. A genius who brings political themes to life by embodying political themes in ordinary people living ordinary lives. Supported by Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors sponsored project Art for Justice and Terry and Bob Lindsay, with additional support from American Express. World premiere at Guthrie Theater. Originally commissioned by Joe Dowling and produced by art director Joseph Haj.
