This Night isn't coming to an end just yet! Atlantic Theater Company's American premiere presentation of Conor McPherson’s The Night Alive has extended its off-Broadway run at the Linda Gross Theatre through February 2, 2014. The show was initially scheduled to run through January 26. Directed by McPherson, The Night Alive stars Tony winner Jim Norton (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, The Seafarer) and Broadway vet Ciaran Hinds (The Seafarer, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof).
Tommy (Hinds) is not a bad man. He’s getting by—renting a run-down room in the house owned by his Uncle Maurice (Norton), keeping his ex-wife and kids at arm’s length, and rolling from one get-rich-quick scheme to the next with his pal Doc. Then one day he comes to the aid of Aimee, who’s not had it easy herself, struggling through life the only way she knows how. Their pasts won’t let go easily. But together there’s a glimmer of hope they could make something more of their lives.
In addition to Norton and Hinds, The Night Alive features the original cast direct from the Donmar Warehouse's sold-out, world premiere run, including Caoilfhionn Dunne, Brian Gleeson and Michael McElhatton.
The Night Alive features scenic design by Soutra Gilmour, lighting design by Neil Austin and sound design by Gregory Clarke. Atlantic Theater Company previously presented premiere productions of McPherson's Dublin Carol and Port Authority.
