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.

Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice

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. Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening, American Psycho) and Jonathan Marc Sherman (Things We Want, Clive) 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 of Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice for The New Group.

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

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.

Performances of Cyrano will be at the Daryl Roth Theatre (101 East 15th Street). Please note that there is no late seating. If you arrive after the show has started you will not be admitted into the theater until intermission.

one in two

Three young men. One of them will be chosen. They will tell ‘his’ story. A story they’re forced to tell over and over again about his new reality and how he lives with it – until he can’t. With riveting simplicity and theatricality, Donja R. Love (Sugar in Our Wounds, Fireflies) turns his emotionally frank and lyrical voice to an intimate story that is shared by many. one in two is a play about what theater can do, and what it means to not be alone. Stevie Walker-Webb (Ain’t No Mo’) directs this world premiere for The New Group.

Additional complimentary seats and locations are subject to availability, maximum 2 per production. Please note that guest tickets cannot be used on Opening Nights.
