1984 New York Tickets
1984 New York TicketsThe stage performance of 1984 is an adaptation of George Orwell’s chilling final book of the same name. Published in June 1949, 1984 follows Winston Smith, who is living in a dystopian society entrenched in war, poverty and repression. Free-thinking and individuality are quashed immediately, and those who do not conform to "Big Brother" are vaporized from existence. In this society, The Party, led by Big Brother, controls every aspect of life. Winston, along with his co-worker Julia, become involved in a forbidden romance and realize they both hate the Party and dream of rebellion. The live performance puts you right in the middle of Winston’s shocking torture and ultimate acquiescing to the Party. 1984 debuted in the United Kingdom at the Nottingham Playhouse on June 14, 2013, and ran through Oct. 29, 2016. Though it has not won any awards, it has been nominated for a handful, including a Tony for Best Sound Design of a Play.

Many people feel that the world that exists in 1984 is not far off from fiction. This makes the draw to 1984 New York more intense and the production itself downright scary for some.
