A World Premiere comedy by A.R. Gurney
Directed by Mark Lamos
EXTENDED THROUGH MARCH 27!
NEW YORK TIMES CRITICS' PICK!
“There are not many fixed verities in the world of the theater, but one of the few is that when A.R. Gurney returns to home territory — writing about the manners and morals of the white Anglo-Saxon Protestant upper class — the results will most likely be gratifying. Black Tie is one of this prolific writer’s MOST ENJOYABLE PLAYS IN YEARS" Isherwood, The New York TimesRead full review here.
With Ari Brand, Daniel Davis, Gregg Edelman, Carolyn McCormick, Elvy Yost
Father of the groom, Curtis, simply wants to make a memorable toast. But before he is able to raise his glass, he must defend the time-honored ways of his past, including his attire. Cultures clash when a surprise guest is announced, threatening to throw convention out the window. Curtis finds that balancing the standards of his late father and the needs of his future family may prove too messy for a black tie affair. Read more about Black Tie.
