Mister Roberts

September 13, 2009 - October 3, 2009
Press Opening Monday, September 14, 2009 @ 7:30pm

Bravery, honor, grace...and rowdy rebellion.

In this 1948 Tony Award-winning classic, a restless crew aboard a cargo vessel idling in the South Pacific is desperately craving some onshore action. When the comedic ensemble clashes with their tyrannical captain, it is Mister Roberts who must bail them out. Thomas Heggen and Joshua Logan's moving, yet humorous story of an officer, who sacrifices his personal quest for the morale of his crew, has us reflecting on one man's search for purpose during a time of war.

"I am thrilled for my directing debut with New Rep to be the very first Tony Award-winning play, Mister Roberts. With a talented ensemble cast, it's a classic; a humorous and moving story that is timeless."
Kate Warner, Artistic Director

"A superlative comedy."
The New York Daily News

The performance runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, including intermission.
