Next Fall Broadway - A New American Play
Next Fall Broadway opened at the Helen Hayes Theatre on March 11, 2010 for an open-ended run. This is a new American play by Geoffrey Nauffts and under the direction of Sheryl Kaller. Some big names behind the producing team include Elton John and David Furnish as well as a great cast. While the show was open-ended it has now been announced to close on July 4, 2010.
Next Fall Broadway is a love story which goes beyond the typical fare. While the play is praised for its examination of faith and love as well as witty writing styles it goes deeper than a traditional love story. It looks at the challenges within beliefs and non-beliefs through a 5-year relationship between Adam and Luke, the two main characters within the story. When one is tragically injured from a taxi accident and left in a coma the other is left to ponder his faith and more importantly his belief in faith itself.
This new American play has begun to generate buzz along the Great White Way. The reviews from top New York City critics have all been strong but for theater lovers, there is more that praise from magazine and paper reviews, which have them interested. The fact that Next To Fall Broadway is a new American play without any stars within the cast as well as being written by Geoffrey Nauffts who is not an exactly household name is where the main interest lies. With much of the Broadway draw for plays these days coming from big Hollywood names and all-star casts many who follow Broadway closely would like to see such a new American play with little "juice" behind it do well.
