No stroll in this ‘Park’

'Clybourne' bows on Broadway

Playwright Bruce Norris ducked the press at the Broadway bow of his Pulitzer Prize-winning “Clybourne Park,” which opened Thursday at the Walter Kerr Theater, following the kind of dramatic ups and downs usually reserved for Lifetime’s endangered mom movies. The production’s brush with extinction came when Scott Rudin abruptly pulled out as lead producer of the drama, which imagines an afterlife for “A Raisin in the Sun,” leaving the show in limbo for what Jujamcyn’s Jordan Roth called “a fascinating three days.”

What other play might Roth fantasize about continuing past its final curtain?

“To see the characters in ‘Angels in America’ continue,” he ventured. “I guess that would be Part 3.”
