When two leading scientists of the day meet to discuss differing theories, a battle between two great intellects (with egos to match) results in an entertaining evening of theater that pulses with wit, humor and tension.
The fantastically brilliant and fresh new play by Lucas Hnath, one of the hottest young playwrights in the country today, explores the 17th century world of Isaac Newton in a completely contemporary and wildly theatrical setting.
Isaac’s Eye features this year’s artist-residence, Drew Brhel (Talley’s Folly, Educating Rita) along with Kay Allmand (The Glass Menagerie, Steel Magnolias) and Dan Klarer (Santaland Diaries, Greater Tuna). Making his Third Avenue Playhouse debut is Jared Davis in the role of Isaac.
Isaac’s Eye runs now through July 23 at the Third Avenue Playhouse. Curtain is at 7:30 pm. Tickets are available online at thirdavenueplayhouse.com, at the theater at 239 North Third Avenue and at the daytime box office, across the street from the theater. Tickets are $27 for general admission and $10 for students.
