Christopher Play Ends Limited Run

March 26, 2012

“Hurt Village” — the acclaimed new work by Olivier Award-winning writer Katori Hall featuring Bermudian actor Nicholas Christopher – finished its limited Off Broadway run in New York last night [Mar. 25].

Originally scheduled to close on March 18, the play’s run was extended for a week due to popular demand.

Patricia McGregor directed “Hurt Village”, a gritty drama about life and change in a family living in a Memphis housing project.

In addition to Mr. Christopher [pictured], “Hurt Village’s” cast included Lloyd Watts, Charlie Hudson III, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Nicholas Christopher, Corey Hawkins, Ron Cephas Jones, Joaquina Kalukango, Tonya Pinkins and Saycon Sengbloh.

The play opened to overwhelmingly positive reviews in February.

Tennessee-born playwright Ms Hall is the writer of the current Broadway sensation “The Mountaintop”, a freestyle meditation about the last night of Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life. That play stars Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett.

The son of Hamilton Crier Ed Christopher, Boston Conservatory- and Juilliard School-trained Nicholas Christopher joined the cast of “Hurt Village” after appearing in the acclaimed New York revival of the rock musical“Rent.”

He made his professional American theatre debut last year in the US touring company of the Broadway musical“In The Heights.”
