Short Takes with David Furr from EQUIVOCATION

David Furr is a part of the ensemble cast of Bill Cain’s newest play, EQUIVOCATION, at Manhattan Theatre Club. Previews begin this Wednesday, February 10. We had the opportunity to get to know David with a few of his recent interests. See what he had to say.


1.What Broadway show, book and movie are you recommending to friends these days?
I honestly haven’t seen much recently. So I don’t have anything burning a place at the top of my recommendation list I’m afraid (except, of course, what my employers, MTC, are producing).  

**Shameless Promotion, Shameless Promotion**




2. What country (other than the US) would you most like to visit?
Greece… No, Egypt.   Wait, probably France.  Of course Ireland sounds quite lovely.



3. What musical theatre character would you most like to be stranded with on a desert island? Why?
JESUS, from Jesus Christ Superstar.  We could survive for a long time on just two loaves of bread, the island would be surrounded by water-to-wine possibilities (I wonder if he could do rum instead) and if things got really bad, the guy can walk on water, and that would come in really handy.  Plus, I could get his autograph, and how valuable would that be!



4. What’s your favorite NYC “hotspot”? (restaurant, bar, museum, neighborhood)
I live in Long Island City.  Turns out it’s pretty great out here.  Right on the river, so it’s cold right now, but a pretty great surprise of a neighborhood.


5. What’s your favorite play by William Shakespeare?
Guess I have to go with Hamlet… No, the Henry IV plays.  Wait, . . maybe Richard II.  Of course Romeo and Juliet is quite lovely.


Bill Cain’s new play set in 1605 England begins when King James’ right hand man (David Pittu) commissions William Shakespeare (John Pankow) to write a new play about the Gunpowder Plot, a recent failed attempt to blow up Parliament and the Monarchy. EQUIVOCATION is a bold new look at the greatest playwright ever in a drama whose contemporary parallels are unmistakable and whose laughter is abundant – a work of startling revelations and vibrant theatricality.

The limited engagement of EQUIVOCATION will begin previews Wednesday, February 10 and open Tuesday, March 2 at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street).
