‘Clybourne’ sets new dates

Broadway play opens in April

The Broadway transfer of “Clybourne Park,” recently rescued from a major funding snag, has set its Rialto opening for April 19, a week later than originally skedded.

Show’s move to the Main Stem, following the production’s current run at Center Theater Group’s Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, had been jeopardized when lead producer Scott Rudin abruptly pulled out of the project. After hustling to secure investors, producers — including Jujamcyn Theaters prexy Jordan Roth — got the show back on track.

Production is initially skedded for a 16-week limited engagement in Gotham. Show seems poised to win the same kind of critical plaudits it earned in its initial 2010 run Off Broadway. Bruce Norris’ play also won the 2011 Pulitzer for drama.

The Broadway staging reunites the Off Broadway cast and creative team, including helmer Pam MacKinnon and thesps Annie Parisse, Crystal A. Dickinson and Frank Wood.

“Clybourne” begins previews March 26 ahead of its April 19 opening at the Walter Kerr Theater.
