The Seafarer, Conor McPherson’s dark comedy about the devil coming for his due, closes on Broadway today. Starring David Morse and Ciaran Hinds, the production had an acclaimed run in London before coming to Broadway for a limited engagement. At its close, The Seafarer will have played 19 preview and 133 regular Broadway performances at the Booth Theatre.
The Broadway openings keep on coming. The Seafarer officially opens tonight at the Booth Theatre, three weeks later than originally planned (delayed due to the Broadway strike, obviously). This production of Conor McPherson’s play, starring David Morse and Ciaran Hinds, comes to Broadway following a run at London’s National Theatre. Other McPherson plays that have appeared on Broadway include The Weir and Shining City.
