One Flew East... One Flew West... One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
by Dale Wasserman
directed by Rick Yaconis
Dale Wasserman's stage adaptation made its Broadway preview on November 12, 1963, its premiere on November 13, and ran until January 25, 1964 for a total of one preview and 82 performances. Since then, the play has had two revivals: first off-Broadway in 1971, with Danny DeVito as Martini, then as a Broadway production in 2001 with Gary Sinise as McMurphy for which it won a Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play. A film version released in 1975 was based on the novel, but not on the play.
