HIGHWAY TO HOTEL
If travel websites reviewed the hotel room in Sarah Kane's Blasted, what might they say? Value: zero stars. Service: zero stars. Cleanliness: Are negative stars given? The posh Leeds suite hosts a bombing, a couple of rapes, and the consumption of a baby (not delivered by room service). This 1995 piece proved a succes de scandale at its London debut, but critics and audiences have since recognized it as a modern classic, an expose of the best and worst of the human heart. Soho Rep artistic director Sarah Benson hosts the New York premiere. Marin Ireland, Reed Birney, and Louis Cancelmi comprise the brutalized cast.
Tuesdays-Sundays, 7:30 p.m.; Tue., Oct. 7, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 2. Continues through Dec. 21, 2008
