Taylor Doherty’s interactive play “The Mystery of the Silver Chalice,” which wowed crowds at 710 Main Theatre in February, has been optioned by a prominent group of Broadway theater producers.
Doherty’s company, Buffalo Laboratory Theatre, announced Thursday that he had signed an option agreement with Tilted Windmills Theatricals, producers of Broadway and off-Broadway shows including “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Marriage,” “American Idiot” and “Clybourne Park.”
A release from the company promises “much more information to come, including details on a national tour and the development of Silver Chalice II right here at the Buffalo Laboratory Theatre.”
An option agreement does not necessarily guarantee an off-Broadway or Broadway production, but it is considered an important first step in taking a show to New York City’s lucrative market.
Doherty’s romantic comedy, in which audience members used remote controls to dictate key decisions of characters, was the first of its kind in Western New York.
