It's official! CLIVE rehearsals have begun!

World Premiere
By Jonathan Marc Sherman
Directed by Ethan Hawke

with Brooks Ashmanskas, Vincent D'Onofrio, Ethan Hawke, Zoe Kazan, and more

Inspired by Bertolt Brecht's inflammatory play Baal, Clive tracks a dissipated songwriter in 1990s New York City from the hedonistic heights of seduction and consumption into an ecstasy of self-destruction. This production reunites Jonathan Marc Sherman and Ethan Hawke, who teamed previously at The New Group on Things We Want (written by Sherman, directed by Hawke). At once a celebration and a nightmare vision of life lived for pleasure, Clive boasts an eclectic selection of classic American songs performed live.

Set Design: Derek McLane

  1. Please tell me that you will be filming one evenings production and then selling the DVD's. It would make a huge fan from Germany very happy and countless others who would not be able to get to NY to watch this play.
