Entire Cast Makes Broadway Debut…

Following an award winning run in London, The Pitmen Painters opened at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on September 30, 2010 to rave reviews by critics and audiences alike. The buzz that surrounds the production includes praise for the cast, director and producer. It seems like this play about a group of Ashington coal miners who, in 1934, hire a professor to teach an art appreciation evening class is well on its way to becoming a Broadway success. The play was written by Tony Award Winner Lee Hall who has also experienced theater triumph with another current Broadway sensation; Billy Elliot.

The play centers on a group of 1930s-era miners who become celebrated artists, finding inspiration from a local art appreciation class. It’s an uplifting tale that shows how hard work, determination and a love of art can help beat the odds. Based on a true story, a group of uneducated, working miners, most of whom had left school at the age of 11, hired the professor of a local university in Northern England to teach them Art History. Having never seen a painting before, the group found it impossible to learn Art History and went on a voyage of discovery about the philosophy of art by doing it themselves. The results were astonishing.

The Pitmen Painters is a Manhattan Theatre Club (MTC) presentation which will feature the cast, who have been with the production since it premiered at Live Theatre in 2007 and includes Christopher Connel, Michael Hodgson, Ian Kelly, Brian Lonsdale, Lisa McGrillis, Deka Walmsley, David Whitaker and Phillippa Wilson. With the entire cast transferring from London, they all made their Broadway debut on opening night. This production marks the first of the MTC 2010/11 season. The show is under the direction of Max Roberts.

The production is on a limited engagement run and is scheduled to close on December 12, 2010. It runs about two hours and thirty minutes with one intermission.
