The Kite Runner, a new play with music based on Khaled Hosseini’s internationally best-selling novel, will play a limited run at Broadway’s Hayes Theater (240 West 44th Street) this summer. The production comes to New York from two seasons in London’s West End where it was called “a cultural phenomenon” by The Sunday Express and “an enthralling tale beautifully told” by The Daily Telegraph.
Performances will begin on July 6; opening night is July 21 and it will run through October 30.
The Kite Runner is directed by Giles Croft and adapted by Matthew Spangler. Humaira Ghilzai is Cultural Consultant. It is produced by Victoria Lang, Ryan Bogner and Tracey McFarland of Broadway & Beyond Theatricals and Jayne Baron Sherman in association with UK Productions Ltd. and Flying Entertainment Ltd/Kilimanjaro Group Ltd. Daryl Roth is the Executive Producer.
