2019/20 Season

The Seagull / Woodstock, NY

Thomas Bradshaw (Intimacy, Burning) returns to The New Group with a new adaptation based on Chekhov’s early masterpiece. A group of New York theater people retreat to a house upstate to get away from it all, but there’s no escaping the ambition and rivalries that torture them – or the absurd ways they inadvertently torture each other. Chekhov’s sharp satirical eye for hypocrisy, self-absorption and compromise among loving, well-meaning people is given fresh, fun emphasis in Bradshaw’s contemporary reworking. Scott Elliott directs this world premiere of The Seagull/Woodstock, NY.

October 11 - December 22, 2019

Cyrano

A raw and transporting new version of the classic tale of unrequited love and ghostwritten letters, Cyrano tells the story of a proud man who, believing himself unlovable, agrees to woo the woman he loves for another. With a charged contemporary immediacy to the language, this adaptation by Erica Schmidt (All the Fine Boys) mines this enduring, human story for its deep vein of heartbroken yearning, with haunting and compelling music by members of the Grammy Award-winning band The National and the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning actor Peter Dinklage in the title role.

A developmental production of Cyrano was presented by Goodspeed Musicals in August 2018.

IMPORTANT: All single ticket sales will be through Ticketmaster. Subscribers are not eligible to purchase guest tickets or any additional full price tickets through The New Group (Spektrix).

Ticketmaster and The New Group (Spektrix) are the official ticket sellers. We can’t assist with any purchases made from ticket resale sites.

 

 

 

November 19, 2019 - January 12, 2020

one in two

Three young Black queer men are waiting to be chosen. When one of them is, he’s forced to live a new reality inside an epidemic, exploring the joys, the gags and the truths of not being defined by his diagnosis. Donja R. Love, inspired by his 10th anniversary of being HIV positive, offers an unflinching portrait of being Black and queer today. With grace and humor, one in two breaks the silence on an experience that’s an ongoing reality for so many, and reveals the community that thrives within it. Stevie Walker-Webb directs this world premiere for The New Group.

January 16 - March 22, 2020

Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice

Dear Friends,

Like many of you, we have been closely monitoring developments with the Covid-19 pandemic and following guidance from the Center for Disease Control as well as other public health officials. With the health and safety of our employees and audiences being of the utmost importance to us, and due to the intimate and interactive nature of this production, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining performances of Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice. We are in the process of contacting all ticket holders to let them know and to communicate how we will handle their orders.

Thank you so much for your support of The New Group and for your understanding. We will continue to monitor the situation to determine when we can resume our programming and look forward to welcoming you back to the theater again soon.

Please continue to take care of yourselves and stay safe and healthy.

 

Best regards,
Scott Elliott                 
Adam Bernstein
Artistic Director           Executive Director

 


 

A bittersweet comic take on the sexual revolution in which the suavely conventional lives of two successful young couples, all friends, are both stirred and shaken when they open their minds to the changing attitudes around them.  Jonathan Marc Sherman (Book), Duncan Sheik (Music, Lyrics) and Amanda Green (Lyrics) evoke both the confusions of the time, and the hard timeless lessons of marriage and emotional commitment, inspired by the brilliant and irreverent Oscar-nominated film.  Scott Elliott directs this world premiere musical of Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice featuring musical staging by Kelly Devine.

Based on the Columbia Pictures motion picture directed by Paul Mazursky and written by Mazursky and Larry Tucker.

This production contains the use of herbal cigarettes, incense and haze. Please note that there is no late seating for this production and no re-entry if you exit during the performance.

Additional complimentary seats and locations are subject to availability, maximum 2 per production. Please note that guest tickets cannot be used on Opening Nights. Patron benefits are offered on an annual basis and are renewable on the anniversary of the gift.
