‘Bluest Eye’ returns to stage

Long Wharf, Hartford launch co-production

Toni Morrison’s “The Bluest Eye” receives another remounting — the first co-production between New Haven’s Long Wharf Theater and Hartford Stage.

Adapted from Morrison’s first novel by Lydia Diamond, the show preemed at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater Company in 2005 as part of its Young Adult Series before moving to New York’s New Victory Theater. Other productions were in Washington D.C. and Chapel Hill, N.C.

The Connecticut shows, which will begin at Hartford in February before transferring to New Haven in March, will be helmed by Eric Ting, Long Wharf’s associate director.
