The original cast — Alex Hanna, Louisa Krause, Matthew Maher and Aaron Clifton Moten — returns with the show, along with director Sam Gold (“The Real Thing,” “Seminar”) and the design team of the premiere production, produced at Playwrights Horizons in the spring of 2013.
The play follows the employees of a ramshackle second-run cinema in Massachusetts. “The Flick” divided some Playwrights Horizons audiences with its embrace of silences and subtle interpersonal storytelling, but earned strong critical notices and later took home the Pulitzer.
Although Rudin more frequently produces on Broadway (“The Book of Mormon,” “A Delicate Balance,” the upcoming “Fish in the Dark” and “Skylight”), he’s also been involved in Off Broadway projects including “Red Light Winter” and “Cock.”
“The Flick” begins previews May 7 ahead of a May 28 opening at the Barrow Street Theater, which has been the home to a string of shows that have managed to carve out unusually long commercial lives Off Broadway, including “Our Town,” “Tribes” and “Buyer and Cellar.”
