Performances begin September 2 for the high-intensity stage adaptation of A Clockwork Orange, which arrives Off-Broadway following acclaimed runs in London and around the world. The all-male staging hails from Action to the Word, a U.K.-based theatre group that presents radical interpretations of classics.
Alexandra Spencer-Jones directs the Off-Broadway staging at New World Stages, with an official opening night scheduled for September 15.
British actor Jonno Davies reprises his role as Alex DeLarge for the New York premiere and is joined by new cast members Matt Doyle as Georgie, Sean Patrick Higgins as Dim, Brian Lee Huynh as Frank/Dr. Brodsky, Timothy Sekk as Chaplain/Deltroid, Aleksander Varadian as Marty/Warder, Ashley Robinson as Minister/Old Woman, Jimmy Brooks as F-Me Pumps/Governor, Misha Osherovich as Pete, and Jordan Bondurant as Droog.
Based on Anthony Burgess’ 1962 novel that also inspired the ground-breaking 1971 Stanley Kubrick film, A Clockwork Orange is set in a dystopian British society and follows “ultra-violent” teen Alex, his band of “Droogs.”
The all-male stage adaptation began at the London Fringe prior to playing the Edinburgh Festival, an international tour, and London’s Park Theatre. Davies first played the role of Alex DeLarge in the Norway tour of the production in 2014, and also led the Singapore tour in 2015 before bringing the show to London earlier this year.
Performances are scheduled to run in New York through January 6, 2018.
