Seafarer Set To Sail Out Of Broadway Berth

Seafarer Set To Sail Out Of Broadway Berth

While the official Broadway Web site for Conor McPherson's The Seafarer has always advertised the play as a "strictly limited engagement," it wasn't until yesterday that the production produced an end-date.

Come March 30, the show will enjoy its last performance at the Booth Theatre to make way for George Stevens, Jr.'s Thurgood (the Laurence Fishburne vehicle about America's pioneering Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall will begin performances on April 20).

Nominated last year for the Olivier Award for Best New Play, The Seafarer's arrival on these shores was greeted with great acclaim. I finally saw it earlier this month and loved it. I'm really sorry to see McPherson's play close.

When the curtain finally falls on The Seafarer, it will have played 133 performances.

If you have not seen this show, make every effort to see it.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
