Tickets are now available for the world premiere of Posterity, starring Hamish Linklater and John Noble. The play, written and directed by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Doug Wright, will begin performances on February 25 at the Linda Gross Theater. The Atlantic Theater production will open officially on March 15 and run through April 5.
The new play explores the nature of artistic success and the fear of being forgotten as Norway’s most celebrated sculptor (Linklater) prepares to commission a portrait of Henrik Ibsen (Noble). The playwright proves to be a hot-tempered, sitter, and the two wage war over his legacy.
In addition to Linklater and Noble, the cast includes Dale Soules, Henry and Mickey Theis.
