A Clockwork Orange is to open off-Broadway for a limited run at the Soho Theatre.
Alexandra Spencer-Jones’s critically acclaimed stage production will be part of the New World Stages after it’s successful staging at London’s Park Theatre (which followed a run at the Soho Theatre in 2012). Previews commence September 2nd, opening on September 25th, and the run will be for 16 weeks. Jonno Davies, who led the London cast, is very excited to be making his New York debut in the lead role Alex De-Large.
Based on Anthony Burgess’s 1962 novel: “A Clockwork Orange lures audiences into a glass-edged, testosterone-filled underworld of a dystopian future. The explosive story of little Alex and his rebellious gang of Droogs is a ground-breaking classic of orgiastic ultra-violence and sexuality. As hauntingly relevant today as when Burgess’ book first published in 1962, and when Stanley Kubrick’s ground-breaking film caused a stir in 1971, A Clockwork Orange is an unapologetic celebration of the human condition.”
Glynis Henderson Productions and Martian Entertainment are the producers of the New York production of A Clockwork Orange. The production will mark the centenary of Burgess’s birth, in 1917.
The complete cast and creative team are yet to be announced.
