Thursday night marked the opening of The Nap on Broadway. Maya Werner from Theater Pizzazz was on the scene to capture the who's who of attendees on Opening Night.

The show is written by Richard Bean and directed by Dan Sullivan. The show stars Alexandra Billings, John Ellison Conlee, Johanna Day, Ahmed Aly Elsayed, Ethan Hova, Heather Lind, Max Gordon Moore, Bhavesh Patel, Thomas Jay Ryan, and Ben Schnetzer.

The Nap is a very funny look at the world of snooker – the British version of pool. Dylan Spokes, a fast-rising young star arrives for a championship tournament only to be confronted by the authorities warning him of the repercussions of match fixing. Before he knows it, Dylan’s forced into underhanded dealings with a cast of wildly colorful characters that include his ex-convict dad, saucy mum, quick-tongued manager and a renowned gangster, to boot. It’s a fast-paced comedy thriller where, in an exciting twist, the tournament unfolds live on stage. In its British premiere, The Guardian raved, “Ingenious,” The Observer cheered, “Outrageously funny,” and The Daily Mail called The Nap “brilliant and terrifically inventive.”
