Pulitzer-Prize and Tony-Award winning Proof Opens Feb. 21 at Gene Frankel Theatre
New York, NY, Jan. 30, 2013 Proof, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, will be performed on consecutive weekends beginning Feb. 21 at the Gene Frankel Theatre.
Originally produced by the Manhattan Theater Club, Proof premiered Off-Broadway in May 2000 and opened on Broadway in October 2000.
Written by American playwright David Auburn, the play won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play.
The play, which was adapted for film in 2005, concerns Catherine, the daughter of Robert, a recently deceased mathematical genius in his fifties and professor at the University of Chicago. The play explores Catherine's struggle with her father's mathematical genius and mental illness and her fear of following in his footsteps.
This production features Leonarda Bosch as Catherine; Andre J. Langton as Robert; Reid Prebenda as Hal and Natasha Brown as Claire.
"We all know performances that touch us at our core," said Co-Producer Leonarda Bosch. "They remind us of the things we care about, the dreams we have, the love in our hearts. This is the goal of our production."
This staging of Proof is being produced by an ensemble of independent actors and artists.
The limited run will include performances at 8 pm on Feb. 21, 22, and 23 with a 2 pm matinee on Feb. 24 and at 8 pm on February 28, March 1, and 2 with a 2 pm matinee on March 3. Tickets are $35 for general admission and $20 for students.
