A Clockwork Orange Hits New York

31st October 2017 | Category: Concerts

After a completely sold-out smash run in London, the extraordinary Clockwork Orange play has finally arrived to New York. You can purchase your tickets here and get ready to enjoy this award-winning and breathtaking masterpiece show filled with testosterone.

The show premiered in New York on September 25 and will run for 16 weeks until January 6, 2018. Juno Davis led the London cast and will make his New York stage debut in the lead role Alex De-Large. You’ll also have the opportunity to se Matt Doyle, Sean Patrick Higgins, Brian Lee Huynh and Timothy Sekk in this electrifying horror dystopian show.

The original novel by Anthony Burgess was published in 1962 and Stanley Kubrick adapted it in 1971 for his classic, highly controversial film.  This adaptation of Burgess’s novel is produced off-Broadway by Glynis Henderson Productions and Martian Entertainment and is also celebrating the centennial of Burgess’s birth in 2017.

Originally developed and presented by Action to The World theater company, this explosive story revolves around ultra-violent Alex De-Large and his band called “Droogs”, as equally brutal as he is.

This nine-member, all-male shirtless gang, spend their days gulping Moloko, narcotics-lased milk and enjoying violence and even rape when the mood strikes. Lust and brutality color every encounter. The setting is minimal, and almost everything is black and white. The emphasis is less on the language, Cockney street slang, and more on the ferocious movement. The show explores the boundaries between the free will and social responsibilities and whether morality is innate or learned.

New York Times described it as “Disturbing, stylish and sexy”, while Entertainment Weekly wrote “Crackles with kinetic energy! It will raise your heart rate for several reasons”. It’s definitely a must see show this fall.

The show is hauntingly relevant as it was in 1962 when the book was published and and when the movie came out in 1971 and caused a stir. We ask you to witness this defiant celebration of the human condition and individual freedoms and watch the show.
