Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus, takes place at the fall of the Roman Empire and the immediate aftermath of Shakespeare’s first tragedy, Titus Andronicus. This new comedy is the brainchild of Pulitzer Prize finalist and MacArthur Fellow, Taylor Mac. Picking up in the aftermath of Shakespeare’s blood-soaked tragedy, Gary follows two lowly servants who are tasked with cleaning up the bodies as the empire descends into chaos.
The entire cast and creative crew of Gary is a veritable who’s who of the stage and screen. Opening the Broadway run as the title character is Nathan Lane, known for his role in The Birdcage and his voice talent work as Timon on The Lion King. Nathan Lane has dozens of roles to his name, earning him countless award nominations and wins. Most recently, Nathan Lane won a Drama Desk Award and a Tony Award, both for Best Actor Featured in a Play in 2018 for his work on Angels in America. In 2006 Lane received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and in 2008, he was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame. In addition to his many theater and film accolades, Nathan Lane has been celebrated for his philanthropy and his commitment to the arts. Lane has been recognized by the Trevor Project (2007), the Human Rights Campaign for Equality (2007), and the Matthew Shepard Award (2015) just to list a few.
Tony Award nominee Kristine Nielsen opens the show opposite of Lane in the macabre cleanup crew, bringing her clever comedic style to the stage and transporting audiences back to the year 400. A veteran of the stage, film, and television, Kristine Nielsen has appeared in many critically acclaimed revivals of popular shows both on and off Broadway. Two-time winner of the Obie Award (1995, 1999) and Drama Desk Award nominee, Nielsen has also appeared on popular shows like Law and Order and Third Watch, and the 2012 Sundance comedy That’s What She Said. As Janice in this fun comedy, Nielsen is sure to delight audiences with her wit and iconic charm.
