Something to stay awake for! Oscar winner Paddy Chayefsky’s Middle of the Night officially opens February 27 at the Clurman Theatre on Theatre Row. Tony nominees Jonathan Hadary and Amelia Campbell star in the Keen Company’s revival of the rarely produced 1954 comedy-drama. The off-Broadway show will play a limited engagement through March 29.

A comedy about a May-December romance in 1950s New York City, Middle of the Night centers on a older Jewish widower (Hadary) and a young gentile bride (Lowrance) of another man, who meet and fall in love, throwing their disapproving families into a tizzy.
