Ethan Dubin, who played a breakout role in Dan LeFranc’s Rancho Viejo at Playwrights Horizons will return Off-Broadway this spring in the title role of Alex Lubischer’s darkly comic play Bobbie Clearly. The production will be the second in Roundabout Underground’s expanded two-play season, following Too Heavy for Your Pocket by Jiréh Breon Holder.
In Bobbie Clearly, the eccentric residents of Milton, Nebraska, are ready to share their sides of the story—the story of how Bobbie killed Casey in the middle of a cornfield.
The New York premiere will begin previews March 8 ahead of an April 3 opening at the Black Box Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.
Will Davis directs a cast that also includes Gabriel Brown (Love & Money) as Pete Pfeifer, Sasha Diamond (Signficant Other) as Meghan Gotschell, Crystal Finn (Kingdom Come) as Jane Welch, Marcus Ho (Three Trees) as Russ Scott, Christopher Innvar (110 in the Shade) as Stanley Welch, Tyler Lea (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) as Eddie Welch, Talene Monahon (The Government Inspector) as Megan Currie, Brian Quijada (Oedipus El Rey) as Mitch Backes, Constance Shulman (Barbecue) as Darla London, and JD Taylor (The Last Match) as Derek Nelson.
The limited engagement is scheduled through May 6.
The creative team for Bobbie Clearly includes Arnulfo Maldonado (sets), Ásta Hostetter (costumes), Jen Schreiver (lighting), and Palmer Hefferan (sound).
All tickets are $25 and are available by calling (212) 719-1300, online at roundabouttheatre.org, in person at any Roundabout box office.
