A New Vision of Ibsen's Classic

Length: 1 hr 30 mins
Intermission: None
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Extant Arts presents GHOSTS, a re-imagining of the Henrik Ibsen's groundbreaking drama. Director Sophie Hunter leads a dynamic cast and international, award-winning creative team from the worlds of opera, Broadway, film, and installation art in transforming this 19th century Norwegian classic into a timeless and searing piece of theatre. Performances begin November 5th at the Access Theatre, located at 380 Broadway.

Enron's Sophie Hunter returns to New York to direct GHOSTS, after touring Europe with Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte. She explains the visceral grip of Ibsen's classic, "GHOSTS is a series of violent encounters between characters ultimately concerned with survival: their own, and that of the faded ideals that haunt them.”

Innovative but true to the spirit of the father of modern theater, this is a GHOSTS for our present moment, as shocking and provocative as ever.

The cast of GHOSTS features Anthony Holds*, LeeAnne Hutchison*, Chris Haag, Paulo Quiros, and Justine Salata. The creative team includes: set designer Fiammetta Horvat, lighting designer Melissa Mizell, video designer Gary Breslin, costume designer Hunter Kaczorowki, sound designer Asa Wember, assistant director Sarah Outhwaite, design assistant Danica Pantic, and stage manager Julia Singer. The production is an Equity Showcase.

Ghosts will be performed at the Access Theater, located at 380 Broadway (at White Street) on the 4th floor. (The theatre is accessible by elevator.)
