Keep your belongings in sight at all times, because the first off-Broadway revival of Joe Orton’s dark comedy Loot begins performances January 9. Presented by Red Bull Theater, the British satire will play a limited engagement at the Lucille Lortel Theater through February 9. Opening night is set for January 16.
Directed by Jesse Berger, the cast of Loot includes Rebecca Brooksher as Fay, Eric Martin Brown as Meadows, Jarlath Conroy as McLeavy, Ryan Garbayo as Dennis, Rocco Sisto as Truscott and Nick Westrate as Hal.
The McLeavy’s are in mourning, but young Hal and his partner-in-crime need someplace to stash their loot. When Scotland Yard’s finest comes sniffing about, no one escapes suspicion, from the naughty nurse to dear old gardening dad. And where did Mrs. McLeavy’s body go? Orton’s wicked stew of Oscar Wilde and Kafka is sexy, sharp-witted, and shocking.
The production will feature set design by Narelle Sissons, costume design by Sara Jean Tosetti, lighting design by Scott Zielinski and sound design by Brad Berridge.
