The American premiere of This Wide Night starring two-time Golden Globe and three-time Emmy Award-winner Edie Falco and Tony nominee Alison Pill opened on Sunday, May 16, garnering rave reviews for its two stars and for Naked Angels’ continued commitment to producing provocative new work. The hit production quickly broke Naked Angels’ previous box office records and announced a one-week extension to its limited engagement. This Wide Night must close on Sunday, June 27.

Ben Brantley, The New York Times

THIS WIDE NIGHT Receives Rave Review in The New York Times

The American premiere of Chloe Moss’ THIS WIDE NIGHT, starring Edie Falco and Alison Pill and directed by Anne Kauffman, opened last night at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre. Below is Ben Brantley’s rave review in The New York Times.

“Two actresses at the TOP OF THEIR GAME. Though it’s running time is less than an hour and a half, I could have raptly watched for another hour or so.”

Two Ex-Cellmates Disoriented by Time
By Ben Brantley, THE NEW YORK TIMES
May 17, 2010

Even without reading Einstein, anyone who lives past the age of 2 figures out that time and space are relative. (When did my bedroom shrink? How did last year disappear so fast?) But rarely do you get to see this law of physics demonstrated with the artistry and emotional impact that Edie Falco and Alison Pill bring to it in “This Wide Night,” Chloë Moss’s deceptively slim two-character play at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater.

On the surface, very little happens in this Naked Angels production, which opened on Sunday night. The most eventful chapters in the existences of Lorraine (Ms. Falco) and Marie (Ms. Pill), former cellmates who meet again in London, are probably in the past, an idea that clearly haunts them. Yet as directed by Anne Kauffman and performed by two actresses at the top of their game, “This Wide Night” feels more packed with complex, compressed life than a season of television crime dramas.

THIS WIDE NIGHT

STARRING EDIE FALCO AND ALISON PILL

BEGINS PREVIEWS TOMORROW, SATURDAY, MAY 8TH

OPENING NIGHT IS SUNDAY, MAY 16TH

www.NakedAngels.com 


The American premiere of This Wide Night starring two-time Golden Globe and three-time Emmy Award-winner Edie Falco and Tony nominee Alison Pill begins previews Saturday, May 8, 2010 at 7:30 PM at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre (416 West 42nd Street).  This Wide Night will open on May 16, 2010 and runs through June 20, 2010. 

This Wide Night is written by Blackburn Prize-winning playwright Chloe Moss and directed by Anne Kauffman.

A prison sentence isn’t over once you leave jail. Having just begun to rebuild a life on the outside, Marie (Pill) is confronted with her past when former cellmate Lorraine (Falco) shows up unannounced on her doorstep. The two outcasts, once so close on the inside, struggle to navigate a friendship beyond the prison walls – which may threaten their prospects to start over.  This Wide Night is a heartfelt and witty portrait of two lost souls trying to find their way in an unforgiving world.

FIRST BROADWAY REVIVAL OF WILLIAM GIBSON’S
THE MIRACLE WORKER

PREVIEWS BEGIN AT CIRCLE IN THE SQUARE
THIS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12

The 50th Anniversary production of William Gibson’s Tony Award® winning play THE MIRACLE WORKER is in Vanity Fair and New York Magazine this week, leading up to its first preview on Friday, February 12 at Circle in the Square Theatre (235 West 50 Street).

Little Miss Miracle

After a 49-year absence, William Gibson’s The Miracle Worker, about the afflicted young Helen Keller and her teacher, Annie Sullivan, is returning to the Great White Way.  The revival, directed by Kate Whoriskey, who last year directed the Pulitzer Prize-winning Ruined, by Lynn Nottage, stars Abigail Breslin, the 13-year-old Academy Award nominee from Little Miss Sunshine (2006), and Alison Pill, a ripe 24, who received a Tony nomination for her work in The Lieutenant of Inishmore in 2006 and is best known in film for her performance as the young activist Anne Kronenberg in Gus Van Sant’s Milk (2008).

Looking for a Fight: Alison Pill on playing Annie Sullivan–fiercely

You won’t hear anyone accusing the Tony-nominated actress Alison Pill of chewing scenery. But destroying it? Definitely. Piper Perabo still vividly remembers the first rehearsal of reasons to be pretty, the 2008 Neil LaBute play in which the two co-starred, when a stage direction called for Pill’s character to slam a door in the midst of an argument. “It was one of those prop doors in a frame,” Perabo says. “She pulled the thing off its hinges. That told me something about her right off the bat.”

“I’ve broken a lot of sets,” the actress—who is about to start previews as Annie Sullivan in The Miracle Worker, opening March 3—admits with a shrug, recalling her handling of a breakaway ashtray in pretty that “got obliterated. I mean, it was dust. And they’re like, Maybe we can just give you a normal ashtray. I guess I don’t know my own strength.”

Directed by Kate Whoriskey (Ruined), THE MIRACLE WORKER stars Academy Award® nominee Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) as Helen Keller and Tony Award® nominee Alison Pill (The Lieutenant of Inishmore) as Annie Sullivan, along with Golden Globe® and Emmy Award® nominee Matthew Modine (“And the Band Played On,” Short Cuts), Jennifer Morrison (Fox’s “House MD,” Star Trek), Tony Award® winner Elizabeth Franz (Death of a Salesman), Tobias Segal, Daniel Orsekes, Michael Cummings, Simone Joy Jones, Yvette Ganier and Lance Chantiles-Wertz.

THE MIRACLE WORKER
will be staged in the round for the first time at Circle in the Square Theatre, where is will open officially on Wednesday, March 3, 2010.
