NEXT FALL Plays Final Week of Performances – Closing July 4th







The Tony-nominated Best Play NEXT FALL, presented by Elton John & David Furnish, written by Geoffrey Nauffts and directed by Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller, will play its final eight performances this week at Broadway’s Helen Hayes Theatre (240 West 44th Street). The production will close after the 3:00 PM matinee on Sunday, July 4, 2010 after 26 previews and 132 regular performances.

NEXT FALL opened on Broadway on March 11, 2010 to unanimous critical acclaim:

“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.” –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.” –Time Out New York. “COMPASSIONATE, 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.” –Associated Press. “A DARING NEW DRAMA.” –Entertainment Weekly. “DEEPLY MOVING AND SURPRISINGLY FUNNY. Geoffrey Nauffts reveals a talent for sharp comic dialogue. He draws all his characters with surprising depth.” –Hollywood Reporter.

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 and played a sold-out run off-Broadway through August 8, 2009. NEXT FALL transferred to Broadway and opened on March 11, 2010 at the Helen Hayes Theatre. The play was nominated for Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Drama League Awards for Best New Play. Director Sheryl Kaller received a Tony nomination for Best Director, and Sean Dugan was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Best Featured Actor. Geoffrey Nauffts received the 2010 Outer Critics Circle’s John Gassner Award for his writing achievement.

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 SmedesCarole L. Haber/Chase Mishkin Ostar, Anthony Barrile, Michael Palitz, Bob Boyett, James Spry/Catherine Schreiber, Probo Productions, 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.

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.
