Last chance to see the world Premiere of
a new play by Dan McCormick
The Directors Company in association with ShadowCatcher Entertainment presents the world premiere of The Violin.
Final Week! Must Close October 14, 2017
59 East 59th Street (between Park and Madison)
Broadway veteran Robert LuPone (A Chorus Line, True West, The Sopranos) stars in a humorous and heartbreaking world premiere drama directed by Joseph Discher (Butler). Peter Bradbury (Broadway’s King Charles III, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, The Cherry Orchard) and Kevin Isola (Showtime's Billions) co-star.
When Bobby, Terry, and Gio—two hapless brothers and a world-weary tailor—find a 1710 Stradivarius violin worth four million dollars in the back of a New York City taxi, it looks like the opportunity to change their fortunes has landed in their laps. A shot at their dreams, however, will mean some quick decisions testing loyalty and family ties with irrevocable consequences.
