The Seafarer @ the 2008 Tony Awards

Conor McPherson

Irish playwright Conor McPherson had two  impressively crafted productions in NYC this past year including PORT AUTHORITY and the Tony nominated THE SEAFARER.  Both plays were critically lauded and THE SEAFARER had an healthy showing at the 2008 Tony Awards.

Artistic Director Tracy Brigden has had a passion for the play since she first saw it in London in 2006.  And after persistent door knocking City has gained one of the earliest Regional productions since the Broadway run closed earlier this year.
