Blindness Sets Date for Off-Broadway Premiere
The acclaimed London production of Blindness is set to begin performances on April 2 at New York's Daryl Roth Theatre. Opening night is set for April 6. The engagement had previously been announced for the fall. The unique and timely work had a sold-out premiere (which was extended) at London’s Donmar Warehouse last year from August 22, 2020 through September 5.
Based on the dystopian novel by Nobel Prize winner José Saramago, adapted by Tony Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) and directed by Walter Meierjohann, Blindness is a socially-distanced sound and light experience. Through spellbinding storytelling narrated by Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson, it unveils the gripping story of a world changed forever in the blink of an eye, reminding us that from the darkness, we will all emerge stronger.
