“BEDLAM is a band of gifted unknowns who can make theatrical magic in an empty room. No theater troupe in America is doing more creative classical revivals.” - Wall Street Journal, Terry Teachout
“No troupe in New York these days rides the storytelling momentum of theater more resourcefully or enthusiastically than BEDLAM.” - The New York Times, Ben Brantley
“Bedlam makes theatre immensely more involving and entertaining for the playgoer who's lucky enough to secure a seat.” - Huffington Post
(New York, NY) – Tickets to the Off-Broadway production of BEDLAM’S PETER PAN, the classic tale of Neverland, go on sale to the general public Thursday, August 31 at www.dukeon42.org or by calling 646-223-3010.
BEDLAM (Eric Tucker, Artistic Director; Kimberly Pau Boston, Managing Director) will launch their 2017/2018 season with BEDLAM’S production of J.M. Barrie’s PETER PAN, directed by Eric Tucker, for a limited 47 performance engagement at The Duke on 42nd Street (229 West 42 street) from Saturday, November 11, 2017, through Saturday, December 23, 2017. BEDLAM’S PETER PAN will open Sunday, November 19, 2017.
BEDLAM’S PETER PAN will star Kelley Curran, Brad Heberlee, Edmund Lewis, Susannah Millonzi, Zuzanna Szadkowski and Eric Tucker.
BEDLAM returns with a new production of J.M. Barrie’s iconic 1904 play about the Darling children who follow Peter Pan and Tinker Bell to Neverland, where children never grow old. BEDLAM’s cast of six will inhabit Barrie’s 25 characters including Pirates, the Lost Boys, Mermaids and the maniacal Captain Hook.
“Peter Pan feels like the perfect play for BEDLAM because J.M. Barrie’s dry wit and humor provide for so many thrilling possibilities for invention,” said BEDLAM’s Artistic Director, Eric Tucker.
The playing schedule for BEDLAM’S PETER PAN is as follows: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 7pm, Friday and Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 7pm, with matinees Saturday and Sunday at 2pm.
Committed to the immediacy of the relationship between the actor and the audience, BEDLAM creates works of theatre that reinvigorate traditional forms in a flexible, raw space, collapsing aesthetic distance and bringing its viewers into direct contact with the dangers and delicacies of life. In this new, fresh, active environment storytelling becomes paramount and the result is a kinetic experience of shared empathy.
