Tickets for "CLIVE" at the Acorn Theatre available

Tickets for "Clive" at the Acorn Theater in NYC are available for purchase.
Tickets for Orchestra seats are $61.25.   Find Tickets

By Jonathan Marc Sherman
Directed by Ethan Hawke

with Brooks Ashmanskas, Vincent D'Onofrio, Ethan Hawke, Zoe Kazan, and more
 
Inspired by Bertolt Brecht's inflammatory play Baal, Clive tracks a dissipated songwriter in 1990s New York City from the hedonistic heights of seduction and consumption into an ecstasy of self-destruction. This production reunites Jonathan Marc Sherman and Ethan Hawke, who teamed previously at The New Group on Things We Want (written by Sherman, directed by Hawke). At once a celebration and a nightmare vision of life lived for pleasure, Clive boasts an eclectic selection of classic American songs performed live.

Clive: a charismatic performer with a nihilist streak, fun-loving, pleasure-seeking, but will manipulate, destroy relationships, and create chaos, all for a vivid experience.
Doc: Clive's companion and his closest thing to a friend, brilliant and challenging, a passionate, almost mystic seeker, has a gruff and confident exterior, but at heart a follower.  
Middle Man: plays Pillar, Huey, Landlord, 2nd Fool, 4th Junkie, Police Officer, Boo, 1st Mountie, 2nd Fisherman; needs a versatile character actor, may sing.

Arrrgh! No hair......... *wails*

Regina Caschetto said...

I agree about the hair, but Vincent singing, playing guitar, nudity & sexual content. If you can go, drop everything & go. Wonder what part Vincent plays.

Leslie Hendrix performed in "7th Monarch" in the same theater on W. 42nd Street where "Clive" will be performed starting in January.

Blanca Acevedo said...

Who's going to see "Clive" on January 19? I'm going to the first Saturday matinee that day and possibly on February 9th as well.

But a shaven head, WAAAH!

Still, if the nudity was guaranteed to be Vincent, I'd mortgage my house and fly out.

thereel said...

LOL, I'd pay extra for orchestra seats.

Sandy said...

If it were Vincent nude, they would have a sell-out attendance every performance, I think. Well, anyone that gets to go, must keep the rest of us informed! Blanca, we are counting on you!

Diane said...

I'd bet my car the only thing that gets naked on stage with Vincent is his head ... ;0) *still mourning the lost curls*

Third row! I am bringing a male friend, and I have warned him that my hand is shooting straight up if audience volunteers are needed like in that spelling bee play I saw off-Broadway a few years ago.

thereel said...

Third row...you'll have a great view!

Sandy said...

Diane, I think you are right! He doesn't seem to care to flash his body in public anymore, , because he really needed some coaxing from Lynch, for Chained. And that's okay because I guess there does come a time in life when that is better left for the young studs.

sixtwosue said...

I just hope it's not one of those shows that closes early because of poor ticket sales ... my fabulous seats are toward the end of the run. In a tiny theater like that, I'll practically be in his lap. I'm going to spend the next 40-something days figuring out what to wear!

thereel said...

I didn't think of that. I'd better get tickets for early February.

I went to see it last night. It was absolutely amazing! D'Onofrio's performance was (as expected) passionate and just extraordinary. Hawke was also fantastic (which was pleasantly surprising as I haven't seen him as much as I have Vincent).

If you enjoy raw acting and something that's going to really make you think I highly recommend this play! I'm going to see it again before it closes.

Also, the running time is slightly wrong. It -is- and hour and a half but there is no intermission.

Thanks Alice!
