The Night of the Iguana play began as a short story Williams wrote in 1948. He expanded it into a one-act stage show in 1959, presented two different three-act versions in 1959 and 1960, and finally arrived at the version we know today for the 1961 Broadway premiere, which earned three Tony nominations, including Best Play.
Three Broadway revivals have taken place since, most recently in 1996. The 2023 Off-Broadway production began as a digital benefit reading in 2020, also directed by Mann. The live premiere at the Pershing Square Signature Center marks the first major revival of The Night of the Iguana off Broadway.
What happens when the lives of six wayward souls — a defrocked priest, an old poet, and four women from all stages of life — collide on a stormy night at a run-down Mexico hotel? Find out at this rare revival of Tennessee Williams's play, starring Tim Daly, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Lea DeLaria, Austin Pendleton, and Jean Lichty.
