Old Hats stars Bill Irwin and David Shiner will keep clowning around off-Broadway for an extra four weeks! The clowning duo’s newest show has received a third Broadway extension through May 9 at the Irene Diamond Stage. Directed by Tina Landau and featuring singer-songwriter Nellie McKay, the production was set to close on April 14.
Irwin and Shiner reunite in this new work combining their unparalleled magic and slapstick. Featuring music by McKay, as well as technology and movement, the duo creates a wild and remarkable world for a new generation of audiences. Old Hats is the first collaboration for Irwin and Shiner since they starred together in Broadway’s Fool Moon in 1993, 1995 and 1998.
Old Hats includes scenic and costume design by G.W. Mercier, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski, sound design by John Gromada and projection design by Wendall K. Harrington.
