Mad Men” starÂ Vincent KartheiserÂ and Broadway’sÂ Larry PineÂ (CASA VALENTINA) will playÂ Billy WilderÂ andÂ Raymond Chandler, respectively, in BILLY & RAY, Mike Bencivenga’s new play — directed by the legendary director/writer/producerÂ Garry MarshallÂ — being given its NY premiere this fall at theÂ Vineyard TheatreÂ (108 E. 15 St.), with previews scheduled to begin October 1 prior to an official opening on October 20. The company just met the press and you can check out photos from inside the event below!
BILLY & RAY — a whip-smart comedy charting the birth of the film noir genre — follows literary odd couple writer-directorÂ Billy WilderÂ and novelistÂ Raymond ChandlerÂ as they contentiously collaborate to adapt the novel Double Indemnity for the silver screen. Set in 1940s Hollywood, BILLY & RAY is the true story of how two brilliant and thorny artists battled the Hollywood censors and each other to create a groundbreaking movie classic.
BILLY & RAY will begin performances October 1 with shows on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 7 pm, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 pm and Saturdays and Sundays at 3 pm. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on September 4. For performance and ticket information, call The Vineyard box office at 212 353 0303 or visitwww.vineyardtheatre.org.
