Bullet for Adolf, the new comedy by Woody Harrelson and Frankie Hyman, will close at off-Broadway's New World Stages on September 30. The play began performances on July 19, opened on August 8 and is canceling its announced extension through October 21.
“Getting to write this play with Frankie, and then watch this amazing cast bring it to life, has been dream come true,” said Harrelson, who also directed the piece. “We’re coming up on our final week, if you haven’t seen it yet, now’s probably a good time.”
Bullet for Adolf is set during the summer of 1983. In the sweltering heat of Houston an unlikely friendship is formed as a couple of Mid-western rubes, with uncertain futures, meet up with a slick New Yorker on the run from his past. The disappearance of a WWII artifact sets off a chain of events that proves that nothing changes the present like a blast from the past. The play features two characters based on Harrelson and Hyman, as well as other people they knew, though the events depicted are fiction and the names have been changed to protect the not-so-innocent.
The cast features Marsha Stephanie Blake, Shamika Cotton, Nick Wyman, Lee Osorio, Brandon Coffey, David Coomber, Shannon Garland and Tyler Jacob Rollinson.
