A Behanding In Spokane Begins Previews Tonight

That's right theatre fans. One of this season's most highly anticipated new shows is set to begin previews tonight on Broadway. A Behanding in Spokane, the newest work by playwright Martin McDonagh will officially open on March 4 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. The play stars Christopher Walken,Sam Rockwell,Anthony Mackie,and Zoe Kazan, with direction by John Crowley who helmed this season's A Steady Rain.Unlike Mr. McDonagh's previous work this is the first play to be set in the United States. Here is a synopsis of the show from a production source.

"The title is just the starting point; take a man searching for his missing hand (Walken), two con artists out to make a few hundred bucks (Mackie and Kazan), and an overly curious hotel clerk (Rockwell), and the rest is up for grabs."

To be honest I've never seen any of his plays but based on the cast I think I might have to check this one out. Based on the playwright's previous track record I expect the show to be a big contender come Tony time. We will soon find out. Get your tickets to see A Behanding in Spokane On Broadway. It's only here until June 6 so don't wait.
