“Blindness,” the acclaimed Donmar Warehouse production of Nobel Prize-winner José Saramago’s dystopian novel written by Tony Award winner Simon Stephens and directed by Walter Meierjohann, will begin an open-ended engagement on Friday, April 2 at Off-Broadway’s Daryl Roth Theatre (101 East 15th Street).
Through spellbinding storytelling, narrated by Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson, the 75-minute work unveils the gripping story of a world changed forever in the blink of an eye, reminding us that from the darkness, we will all emerge stronger.
Just as it was presented in London, attendees in New York will hear the narrative unfolding around them through binaural headphone technology while surrounded by immersive lighting and atmospheric design, and experience together – safely – the importance of community in our present moment.
In accordance with New York State’s recently released guidelines for arts and entertainment venues, the Daryl Roth Theatre has been transformed to accommodate socially distanced seating at a maximum of 50 people per performance. All tickets will be sold in two-seat pods, enabling two people in a social pod to be seated together, six feet away from other pods.
