Bishop Gene Robinson to lead NEXT FALL talkback tonight

“FIVE STARS. The best new American play of the Broadway season!” Time Out New York


Tuesday, April 13th


Bishop Gene Robinson is the first openly gay priest to be ordained a bishop in a major Christian denomination. He currently serves as the ninth bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire in the Episcopal Church. Following tonight’s 7PM performance he will participate in a discussion with cast and audience members. The talkback is free to anyone attending tonight’s performance.

Elton John & David Furnish present NEXT FALL, the new American play by Geoffrey Nauffts and directed by Sheryl Kaller, now playing at the Helen Hayes Theatre (240 West 44th Street). NEXT FALL opened on Broadway on Thursday, March 11, 2010.

NEXT FALL stars Patrick Breen as Adam, Maddie Corman as Holly, Sean Dugan as Brandon, Patrick Heusinger as Luke, Connie Ray as Arlene and Cotter Smith as Butch.
The creative team for NEXT FALL includes Wilson Chin (Set Design), Jeff Croiter (Lighting Design), John Gromada (Sound Design) and Jess Goldstein (Costume Design).
NEXT FALL is produced on Broadway by Elton John and David Furnish, Barbara Manocherian, Richard Willis, Tom Smedes,  Carole L. Haber/Chase Mishkin Ostar, Anthony Barrile, Michael Palitz, Bob Boyett, James Spry/Catherine Schreiber, Probo Productions, and Roy Furman in association with Naked Angels (Geoffrey Nauffts, Artistic Director; John Alexander, Managing Director; Andy Donald, Associate Artistic Director; Brittany O’Neill, Producer). Susan Mindell is the Executive Producer.
NEXT FALL had its world premiere in a Naked Angels production, opening to critical acclaim on Wednesday, June 3, 2009 at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater. NEXT FALL played a sold-out run off-Broadway, extending three times, and played through August 8th.
Geoffrey Nauffts’ NEXT FALL takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. While the play’s central story focuses on the 5-year relationship between Adam and Luke, NEXT FALL goes beyond a typical love story. This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to “believe” and what it might cost us not to.

THE FUNNIEST HEARTBREAKER IN TOWN! Next Fall embodies something theatergoers have been sorely missing, perhaps without knowing it, for years. A smart, sensitive, immensely appealing and utterly contemporary New York comedy with a wonderful cast.”
– Ben Brantley, New York Times

FIVE STARS. THE BEST NEW AMERICAN PLAY OF THE BROADWAY SEASON, Next Fall leaves you thinking about rapture and rupture. If you go, which you should, be prepared to laugh some, perhaps to cry some, and then to rise in appreciation.”
– Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

COMPASSIONATE, EXPERTLY CAST, LAUGH-FILLED and ENORMOUSLY ENTERTAINING. Geoffrey Nauffts invests the play with a generosity that doesn’t prejudge, embracing both the virtues and foibles of his characters. And that inclusion makes Next Fall an even richer experience.”
– Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press

DEEPLY MOVING and SURPRISINGLY FUNNY. The six-person ensemble delivers terrific performances. Geoffrey Nauffts reveals a talent for sharp comic dialogue. He draws all his characters with surprising depth.”
– Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter

– Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post

– Melissa Rose Bernardo, Entertainment Weekly

trust me, this show is going to be a huge hit!”
