Hand To God
New Broadway Show Offering Discounted Preview Tickets
Producer Kevin McCollum announced today that Broadway’s Hand to God will offer theatergoers a very special price in celebration of its 2015 Broadway premiere: $20.15 per ticket. A limited quantity of tickets at this special price will be available for 15 performances, March 14 through March 27, and must be purchased during a limited on-sale window (now through 11:00PM on Friday, March 13th). There is also a limit of 4 tickets per purchase, and tickets will be available online, via phone or at the box office.
Producer Kevin McCollum said: "Hand to God is a show that is going to get both traditional and non-traditional theatergoers talking-in a big way. To that end, we wanted to make the show affordable for audiences eager to get in on the conversation early."
The new American play Hand to God will open on Broadway on April 7, 2015 at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street), marking the Broadway debuts of playwright Robert Askins and director Moritz von Stuelpnagel. Previews begin on March 14, 2015. For more info, visit www.HandToGodBroadway.com.
The hilarious and provocative Hand to God centers on shy, inquisitive student Jason, who finds an outlet for his burgeoning creativity at the Christian Puppet Ministry in the devoutly religious, relatively quiet small town of Cypress, Texas. Jason’s complicated relationships with the town pastor, the school bully, the girl next door and-most especially-his mother are thrown into further upheaval when Jason’s hand puppet Tyrone-once soft-spoken-takes on a shocking and dangerously irreverent personality all its own. As Tyrone’s influence over Jason steadily grows, Hand to God explores the startlingly fragile nature of faith, morality, and the ties that bind us.
Hand to God features Steven Boyer as Jason/Tyrone; Geneva Carr, in her Broadway debut, as Margery; Tony® Award nominee Marc Kudisch as Pastor Greg; Sarah Stiles as Jessica; and Michael Oberholtzer, in his Broadway debut, as Timmy. Boyer reprises the role for which he has been honored with an Obie Award, the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Leading Actor in a Play, the Actors’ Equity Association Clarence Derwent Award for Most Promising Newcomer, and a citation from the Drama League for Distinguished Performance, among other awards.
The design team for Hand to God includes scenic design by Beowulf Boritt, costumes by Sydney Maresca, lighting by Jason Lyons, sound by Jill BC Du Boff, puppet design by Marte Johanne Ekhougen, and fight direction by Robert Westley.
Hand to God is produced on Broadway by Kevin McCollum, whose credits include Rent, Avenue Q and In the Heights-each the winner of the Tony® Award for Best Musical; as well as The Drowsy Chaperone and Motown the Musical, among many others.
