New Diorama Theatre is delighted to announce today that their Edinburgh Fringe hit show Secret Life of Humans is transferring for a five-week run, at the Brits Off-Broadway which runs at New York’s 59E59 Theaters from 30 May until 01 July 2018.
The show, a co-production with Greenwich Theatre, written by David Byrne, and co-directed by David Byrne and Kate Stanley, is the first of their in-house productions to transfer internationally. The original cast and production team will transfer with the show.
The show, the New Diorama’s fifth in-house production, is devised and inspired by Yuval Harari’s international bestseller, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind and the life of celebrated mathematician and television presenter Dr Jacob Bronowski.
David Byrne said “Secret Life of Humans is the first of our in-house productions to transfer internationally and the whole ensemble are incredibly excited to present our hit show to New York audiences. Jacob Bronowski, one of the show’s central characters, had his first big US hit with Ascent of Man, which we recreate as part of the production. So hopefully that’ll be a good omen for the success of Secret Life of Humans Off-Broadway.”
The show is a New Diorama production, in co-production with Greenwich Theatre and before transferring to New York it will have a London run at the both the New Diorama Theatre 10 April to 05 May 2018 and the Greenwich Theatre from 08 to 12 May 2018.
The production is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, The Cockayne Foundation, and PRS For Music Foundation.
