Bridge Production Group will present David Hare’s THE BLUE ROOM directed by Max Hunter at The WhiteBox Art Gallery (329 Broome Street between Bowery and Chrystie Streets), July 12-29. Performances will run Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday at 7pm, Friday and Saturday at 8pm, and Saturday, July 21 & 28 at 2pm.

Last seen on Broadway with Nicole Kidman in 1998, The Blue Room is David Hare's loose adaptation of La Ronde - a series of vignettes that show how chance sexual encounters travel throughout class and power in society. The Bridge Production Group is thrilled to reunite Artistic Director Max Hunter and Resident Artist Christina Toth in presenting The Blue Room, bringing the company’s visual and abstracted aesthetic to create a multimedia immersion of light, sound, movement, and performance. The Bridge is transforming The WhiteBox Gallery on the Lower East Side, creating an immersive visual art instillation that will house performance salons – only forty audience members per performance!
The cast will feature Max Hunter* (Red Light Winter with Bridge Production Group) and Christina Toth (Annalisa on “Orange is the New Black”; Lazarus at New York Theatre Workshop). The creative team will include Lighting & Projections Design by Cheyenne Sykes (Assistant Lighting Designer, Drake Boy Meets World European Tour), and Costume Design by Nicolle Allen (Netflix’s “The Irishman” with Martin Scorsese; Saturday Night Live).
