Beware of sticky fingers off-Broadway, because the revival of Joe Orton’s dark comedy Loot opens January 16. Presented by Red Bull Theater, the dark British satire will play a limited engagement at the Lucille Lortel Theater through February 9.
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.
