Woyzeck by Georg Büchner
adapted by Neil LaBute
Directed by Granada Artist-In-Residence Bob McGrath
This production of Woyzeck, by Georg Büchner, is adapted by Neil LaBute (a playwright famous for his black humor and violent tales in which often women run afoul of men with borderline personality disorders). Set in a nineteenth-century operating theatre, LaBute’s adaptation of Woyzeck holds faithfully to the original but has a number of adept adjustments to make it more comprehensible and engaging for a modern audience.
Director and Granada Artist-in-Residence Bob McGrath has directed theatre and opera at venues including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Lincoln Center, The American Repertory Theatre, Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall and the Vineyard Theatre. He has collaborated with composers, writers and conductors including John Adams, David Lang and Julia Wolfe. Mr. McGrath is the recipient of three OBIE awards for: Direction, Best Production and Sustained Achievement.
