The Play That Goes Wrong
Ben Brantley of The New York Times calls THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG “A GUT-BUSTING HIT!” and The Huffington Post says, “THIS IS THE FUNNIEST PLAY BROADWAY HAS EVER SEEN!” Winner of the Olivier Award for BEST NEW COMEDY, this sidesplitting show-within-a-show is a classic murder mystery chock-full of mishaps and more madcap mania than a Monty Python marathon!

Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it’s bedlam beyond Broadway’s wildest nightmare and “A RIOTOUS EXPLOSION OF COMEDY!” (The Daily Beast).

Date: Through November 19
Venue: Lyceum Theatre Broadway, 149 West 45th Street

Seamus Heaney’s “Aeneid, Book IV” with Stephen Rea and Neil Martin

Acclaimed actor Stephen Rea teams with cellist Neil Martin to present the U.S. premiere of their staging of Seamus Heaney’s translation of Aeneid Book VI. “There’s one Virgilian journey that has indeed been a constant presence and that is Aeneas’s venture into the underworld,” Seamus Heaney once told an interviewer. “The motifs in Book VI have been in my head for years — the golden bough, Charon’s barge, the quest to meet the shade of the father.”

Heaney’s translation of Book VI of the Aeneid, which he began when his father died in 1986, was virtually complete when he himself died in 2013. Now the Poetry Center teams with Rea and Martin, two of Heaney’s old friends, to present a staged reading of the translation — “a remarkable and fitting epilogue to one of the great poetic careers of recent times,” wrote Nick Laird.

Date: May 22, 7:30pm
Venue: Kauffmann Concert Hall, Lexington Avenue at 92nd Street Y
