Conor McPherson's 'The Night Alive' jumps to NY


| Zoom

NEW YORK (AP) - Irish playwright Conor McPherson's latest play "The Night Alive" will leap from the Donmar Warehouse in London to the Atlantic Theater Company in New York next month with the same cast led by Jim Norton.

The play explores the disruptive impact of a female intruder on a world of masculine solitude. A nine-week run begins Nov. 30 with an opening set for Dec. 12.

In addition to Norton, who won a Tony Award in 2008 for his role in "The Seafarer," the cast of "The Night Alive" includes Caoilfhionn Dunne, Brian Gleeson, Ciaran Hinds, Michael McElhatton. It will be directed by the playwright, who also wrote "The Seafarer" and "The Weir."

Norton was last on Broadway in "The Mystery of Edwin Drood." His other credits include "Finian's Rainbow" in New York and "The Veil" and "The Pillowman" at London's Royal National Theatre.
