Richard Foreman returns to The Public Theater with his newest piece, IDIOT SAVANT staring Willem Defoe. Below are early production photos...


Written and Directed by Richard Foreman
Featuring Willem Dafoe, Joel Israel, Alenka Kraigher, Elina Löwensohn, Eric Magnus and Daniel Allen Nelson

October 27 - December 13

Marie asks the Idiot Savant, “But what makes chosen words – magic?” What follows is a wild theatrical odyssey that could only have sprung from the fantastical mind of Richard Foreman (THE THREEPENNY OPERA), New York’s legendary avant-garde genius. This new work is a philosophical comedy, in the great tradition of Ionesco and Preston Sturges. From precise existential and metaphysical acrobatics, to a ridiculous game of inter-species golf with Giant Duck, IDIOT SAVANT is a fresh, bracing and hilarious exploration of the boundaries of the legitimate.

It was announced today that the 2010-2011/Tony Kushner season at the Signature Theater Company (the NY one) would include the first NYC revival of Angels in America - both parts one and two, in rep. Michael Greif will direct. Ludlow thinks that it will be great to see these plays in a new production, in a more intimate setting. The $20 tickets, underwritten by Time Warner, will be gone before you can say Prior Walter. Now we are just hoping that A Bright Room Called Day will also be a part of the Kushner Season.
