Actresses will star in 'Wide Night' from Naked Angels
Edie Falco and Alison Pill will star in an Off Broadway production of Chloe Moss’ play “This Wide Night” in the spring.
Anne Kauffman (“Stunning,” “The Thugs”) helms the show from Naked Angels, the legit troupe that originated current Broadway offering “Next Fall.”
Falco, topliner of Showtime skein “Nurse Jackie” (now airing its second season), has appeared on Broadway in revivals of ” ‘night, Mother” (2004) and “Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune” (2002). Pill starred in the short-lived revival of “The Miracle Worker,” which shuttered Sunday in the wake of disappointing sales.
“Wide Night” follows a female ex-con (Pill) who is unexpectedly visited by her former cellmate (Falco). The play, which won the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for femme-penned plays, was first produced in 2008 by Clean Break, a London org that works with women affected by the criminal justice system.
Stateside preem will play the Peter Jay Sharp Theater, the Playwrights Horizons-operated venue where “Next Fall” ran last summer.
Naked Angels is billing “Wide Night” as the first of a 25th anniversary season, with further offerings to be announced. “Wide Night” begins preview May 8 ahead of a May 16 opening.
