Galileo on Broadway: Show Times and Tickets
Classic Stage Company presents Bertolt Brecht's masterpiece, starring Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham as the Italian astronomer and philosopher hailed by Albert Einstein as the father of modern science.

The Off-Broadway production of Galileo closed March 18, 2012. For current Off-Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

According to press notes, the play "explores the question of a scientist's social and ethical responsibility, as the brilliant scientist Galileo must choose between his life and his life's work when confronted with the Inquisition."

German dramatist Bertolt Brecht wrote his first version of "Galileo" between 1937 and 1939, and a second (sometimes called the 'American version') between 1945–1947, in collaboration with Charles Laughton. The play explores the last years of Galileo's life, when he was persecuted by the Roman Catholic Church for the promulgation of his discoveries.

F. Murray Abraham won an Academy Award in 1984 for his portrayal of composer Antonio Salieri in "Amadeus." Abraham will be joined in the cast of "Galileo" by Jon DeVries, Robert Dorfman, Aaron Himelstein, Andy Phelan, Amanda Quaid, Steve Rattazzi, Steven Skybell and Nick Westrate. CSC's Artistic Director Brian Kulick will direct.

What is Classic Stage Company? CSC is an award-winning Off-Broadway company which is "committed to re-imagining the classical repertory for a contemporary American audience." Founded in 1967, the company performs in an intimate 199-seat venue near Union Square. More here.
