Theater for the New City's premiere showcase engagement of Charles Busch's epic new comedy JUDITH OF BETHULIA, directed by Carl Andress (The Divine Sister; Die, Mommie, Die!) has sold out all available tickets for its strictly limited 24 performance run at Theater for the New City's Cino Theater (155 First Avenue). JUDITH OF BETHULIA must close Sunday, April 28.
Tickets for JUDITH OF BETHULIA sold out just prior to show's first performance on Friday, March 30. This is the first time in the theatre's forty-year history that a show has sold out its entire run prior to the start of performances and marks the second consecutive sold out run for Busch at Theater for the New City. He previously presented the 2010 world premiere of The Divine Sister at the landmark downtown venue. Following that record-breaking run, Daryl Roth transferred the production to the SoHo Playhouse which became one of the biggest hits of Busch's legendary Off-Broadway career.
In order to assist patrons still looking to obtain last minute cancelation tickets, Theater for the New City has a waitlist policy. Anyone interested in being put on a waitlist for a sold out performance can call the Theater for the New City box office at (212) 254-1109 and ask to be placed on a waiting list for any specific performance. Patrons may only request to be on the waiting list for one performance. A maximum of 10 people can be waitlisted for any one performance. Once the maximum is reached for that performance, no further waitlist names will be accepted for that performance.
Busch as 'Judith' is join joined by Dave August (Naked Boys Singing!), Christopher Borg (Penny Penniworth), Larry Bullock (Charles Busch and Julie Halston: Together on Broadway), Jennifer Cody (Shrek, The Pajama Game), KendAl Sparks (Where's Charley? at Encores!), Mary Testa (Queen of the Mist, Xanadu), Jennifer Van Dyck (The Divine Sister, The Third Story), John Wojda (The Merchant of Venice, Busch's Queen Amarantha), and Billy Wheelan (Our Leading Lady, The Lady in Question is Charles Busch).
JUDITH OF BETHULIA is an outrageous and bawdy celebration of the Hollywood Biblical epic. Lepers, whores, eunuchs, centurions, evil generals, youthful poets and a beautiful redheaded widow make Charles Busch's latest comedy an event worth praying for.
The creative team for JUDITH OF BETHULIA includes: Scenic and Graphic Design by B.T. Whitehill, Costume Design by Jessica Jahn, Lighting Design by Kirk Bookman, Sound Design by Jill BC DuBoff, and Wig Design by Katherine Carr.
