Jerry Zaks, Tina Benko, Adam Chanler-Berat, John Larroquette, Douglas Sills, Will Swenson and More Head to Lincoln Center For Nantucket Sleigh Ride

Lincoln Center Theater (under the direction of André Bishop) will produce Nantucket Sleigh Ride, a new play by John Guare.   Nantucket Sleigh Ride, which will be directed by Jerry Zaks, will begin performances Thursday, February 21 and open Monday, March 18  at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater (150 West 65 Street).

 Nantucket Sleigh Ride marks the return of playwright John Guare and director Jerry Zaks to Lincoln Center Theater where their critically acclaimed productions of The House of Blue Leaves and Six Degrees of Separationpremiered.   Nantucket Sleigh Ride’s cast of 10 will feature Clea Alsip, Tina Benko, Adam Chanler-Berat, Jordan Gelber, John Larroquette, Grace Rex, Stacey Sargeant, Douglas Sills, and Will Swenson, with additional casting to be announced at a later date.  The production will have sets by David Gallo, costumes by Emily Rebholz, lighting by Howell Binkley, and original music and sound by Mark Bennett.

A Nantucket Sleigh Ride is an old whaling term: “Sailors would harpoon a whale and the whale would drag the sailors on a frantic race across the ocean – for hours – for days –until the whale had died or the sailors had drowned.”

In his attempts to recover a memory of an event that happened on that ‘far away island’ 35 years before,  Nantucket Sleigh Ride plunges a New York playwright-turned- venture capitalist (to be played by John Larroquette) into a whirlpool of a giant lobster, Roman Polanski, a pornography ring, Walt Disney, a murder, stranded children, and Jorge Luis Borges, with the most unexpected results.

American Express is the sponsor of LCT’s Mitzi E. Newhouse season.  Generous support for  Nantucket Sleigh Ride is provided by the J&AR Foundation.  The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust provides major support for new American plays at LCT. The Mitzi E. Newhouse season is also supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
