Performances began March 8 for the New York premiere of Alex Lubischer’s Bobbie Clearly, the second play in Roundabout Underground’s expanded two-play season. Will Davis directs the limited Off-Broadway engagement in Roundabout’s Black Box Theatre.
In Bobbie Clearly, something unspeakable happened in the middle of a cornfield two years ago. Now, at last, the upstanding residents of Milton, Nebraska—from the cop and the nurse to the co-captains of the dance team, and even Bobbie himself—are ready to tell you their sides of the story. Ethan Dubin, who played a breakout role in Dan LeFranc’s Rancho Viejo at Playwrights Horizons, returns Off-Broadway in the title role of Bobbie.
Bobbie Clearly will officially open April 3 in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. The limited engagement is scheduled through May 6.
