Harrelson directs Off Broadway

'Bullet for Adolf' gets run at New World Stages

Woody Harrelson will direct an Off Broadway production of “Bullet for Adolf,” a comedy he co-wrote with Frankie Hyman. Work, which world-preemed last year in Toronto, is set for a Gotham stint that begins in July at New World Stages.

Set in the early 1980s, the show centers on a couple of construction workers and a missing WWII artifact. Storyline is loosely inspired by the real-life friendship of Harrelson and Hyman, who worked together in Houston construction at the same time the play is set.

Harrelson previously helmed the Toronto bow of Kenneth Lonergan’s play “This Is Our Youth.” In Gotham he starred in the 1999 Broadway revival of “The Rainmaker.”

Cast of “Bullet” includes Marsha Stephanie Blake, Raul Casso, Brandon Coffey, David Coomber, Shamika Cotton, Shannon Garland, Chris Myers and Nick Wyman. Dane Laffrey (sets), Kristy Leigh Hall (costumes), Jen Schriever (lights), Brett Jarvis (sound) and Imaginary Media (projections) make up the design team.

The eight-week run is produced by Children at Play, the company that also produced the Canuck staging. Show begins previews July 19 ahead of an Aug. 8 opening.
