Manhattan Theatre Club’s production of “The Collaboration” will resume performances on Dec. 26. The play, which stars Paul Bettany as Andy Warhol and Jeremy Pope as Jean-Michel Basquiat, canceled its Dec. 20 opening night performance due to a COVID case within the company.
Subsequently, producers posted on MTC’s official Instagram account that performances would be canceled through Dec. 23. Ticketholders should contact their point of purchase.
Though performances are set to resume on Dec. 26, there is no update regarding the date of the production’s official opening night.
The producers previously announced an extension through Jan. 29 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
In addition to Bettany and Pope, “The Collaboration” features Krysta Rodriguez as Maya and Erik Jensen as Bruno Bischofberger. Director Kwame Kwei-Armah leads the creative team. The mounting features scenic and costume design by Anna Fleischle, lighting design by Ben Stanton, sound design by Emma Laxton, projection designer by Duncan McLean and original music by Ayanna Witter-Johnson.
