Scenes to New York

van Hove

Belgian van Hove’s celebrated adaptation of Scenes from a Marriageopened in Amsterdam already in 2005, and has since had guest performances on a number of European stages. It has now been translated by author, director and Broadway veteran Emily Mann and will be perforned from September (opening night date not set) at the New York Theatre Workshop.

Ivo van Hove holds, by the way, with his productions of (besides Scenes),Cries and WhispersPersona and From the Life of the Marionettes, world record in number of Bergman plays directed. They have all been tremendously reviewed.
