Opening of Ethan Hawke Off-Broadway Play Delayed

The opening of Blood From a Stone, a new off-Broadway play starring Ethan Hawke, has been delayed a week. The Jan. 6 debut was pushed to Jan. 12 "to give the actors more time to absorb script revisions," notes the New York Times.

The play had been running over three hours in previews last week. Playwright Tommy Nohilly and director Scott Elliott trimmed 15 minutes off the production and the extra preview time will allow the show to gel, according to Elliott.

Blood From a Stone also stars Gordon Clapp and Natasha Lyonne.
