Off B'way play will begin next month
Classics-centric Off Broadway troupe Red Bull Theater will produce John Webster’s 17th century play “The Duchess of Malfi” next month in a production directed by Red Bull a.d. Jesse Berger.
Cast will include Patrick Page (“The Lion King”), Matthew Rauch (“A Prelude to a Kiss”) and Gareth Saxe (“The Homecoming”).
Webster’s bloody story centers on a noblewoman who falls in love with a steward, and the court intrigue her affair inspires.
The production from Red Bull, which also has produced well-received stagings of “The Revenger’s Tragedy” and “Pericles,” among other plays, will run Feb. 23-March 14 at the Theater at St. Clement’s.
