Mark Rylance Brings His Acclaimed Performance To Broadway!

Jerusalem tickets are available now for all performances of English dramatist Jez Butterworth's new comedic play. The production received rave reviews for its London run leading the way for the April 21, 2011 opening at the Music Box Theatre on Broadway. While the title may be a bit misleading rest assured the play is not about Zionism. Mr. Butterworth's work rather takes the viewer on an unwavering journey of the brutality and radiance of humanity. The play is scheduled for a short run and certainly one any theatergoer is not going to want to miss!

The story takes place on St George's Day, a popular holiday in many countries to celebrate the Saint. The main character Johnny Byron, played with brilliance by Mark Rylance, finds the cards stacked against him on the day of the county fair. The one-time eccentric ex-daredevil is a wanted man with the town council trying to serve him an eviction, his son wanting to go to the fair, his friends hounding him for his drugs and booze and a local man wanting to kick his teeth in. The writer paints a contemporary vision of today's life and struggles with amazing style and sincerity.

Jerusalem tickets premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2009. The debut production could captivate audiences with its poignant subject matter, comedy and strong performances. The staging for the play included props such as real trees and animals, including chickens. Ian Rickson directed a strong cast which included Mark Rylance as Johnny, Mackenzie Crook as Ginger, Alan David as the Professor and Tom Brooke as Lee. The stage show would go onto receiving positive reviews prompting a transfer to the larger West End Apollo Theatre. The transfer was scheduled for a strict limited twelve week run closing April 24, 2010. The show would receive its first negative reviews but Rylance would go onto winning the Olivier Award for Best Actor.

Mark Rylance has revived his role as Johnny 'Rooster' Byron for the Broadway run which began previews on April 2, 2011. The new play at the intimate Music Box Theater was originally slated to close July 24 but has been extended through August 21. Other members of the Broadway cast include Tony winner John Gallagher, Jr., Max Baker, Geraldine Hughes and Richard Short under the direction of Ian Rickson.

Jerusalem tickets are suited for a mature audience. The play contains strong language and subject matter, which are defiantly not for kids. For those adults looking forward to seeing one of the most powerful performances of the year (one which is likely to win the Tony Award for Rylance) in a small setting then "Jerusalem" is not to be missed! It will mesmerize the viewer with brazened dialogue, which is delivered in a crafty, hysterical and wrenching manner. With the extended run now is the chance to book some seats and see what all the buzz is about!
