Synopsis: 

Three-time Tony Award® winner Nathan Lane and Tony-nominee Kristine Nielsen will star this season on Broadway in the world premiere of Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus, the new comedy by Pulitzer Prize finalist and MacArthur Fellow, Taylor Mac. Directed by five-time Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe, Gary is set just after the blood-soaked conclusion of William Shakespeare’s first tragedy, Titus Andronicus.

In Gary, Taylor Mac’s singular world view intersects with Shakespeare’s first tragedy, Titus Andronicus. In Mac’s extraordinary new play, set during the fall of the Roman Empire, the years of bloody battles are over. The civil war has ended. The country has been stolen by madmen, and there are casualties everywhere. And two very lowly servants – Lane and Nielsen – are charged with cleaning up the bodies. It’s the year 400 – but it feels like the end of the world.

    Review: Taylor Mac’s ‘Gary’ Finds Hope and Humor on a Pile of Corpses

    Jesse Green

    April 21, 2019: Taylor Mac’s new play, which opened on Sunday at the Booth Theater in a production starring Nathan Lane, is the unlikeliest bird to land on Broadway in many a year. Much like Mr. Mac himself at the end of “A 24-Decade History of Popular Music,” his epic revision of American culture, it is fabulous and bedraggled: a defiant and beautiful mess.

    Greg Evans

    April 21, 2019: And while we’re on the subject of inadequacy, put me down for singling out Lane, who is only the most obvious of the pleasures in Taylor Mac’s Gary: A Sequel To Titus Andronicus, the outrageous, hysterically funny and connivingly moving new play opening on Broadway tonight at the Booth Theatre.

    Broadway Review: ‘Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus’ With Nathan Lane

    Marilyn Stasio

    April 21, 2019: But this is low comedy, so expect plenty of fart jokes and penis wagging and doubles entendre interlaced with the sweet humanity and higher-toned political satire. When Janice instructs Gary on how to clean the corpses for burial, she doesn’t hesitate to poke and prod for gas and to toss intestines around for fun. George C. Wolfe directed this play, so nobody misses a trick with the physical comedy. If poking and prodding and tossing and wagging are called for, it will be done.

    Frank Scheck

    April 21, 2019: It would be a pleasure to report that the gamble has paid off, at least creatively. Unfortunately, despite the tremendous abundance of talent both onstage and off, the production is mainly notable for being the most batshit-crazy thing to be seen on Broadway in many a moon.

    REVIEW: Nathan Lane plays title character in Broadway’s ‘Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus’ with a funny, formidable ferocity

    Chris Jones

    April 21, 2019: There's no middle aisle at this one, folks. Consider yourself warned. The title character in this whacked-out play, a self-declared sequel to William Shakespeare’s whacked-out “Titus Andronicus” and as subversive a comedy as Broadway has ever seen, is what you might call a clown with ambition — which is a pretty good description of the real-life actor who happens to be playing that role with formidable ferocity, Nathan Lane.
