The Lincoln Center production will begin previews Oct. 28 and open Nov. 21 at the Booth. LCT's usual Broadway venue, the Vivian Beaumont, is currently tied up with the extended run of The Light in the Piazza.
Lamos directed the work at Hartford Stage in 2002. Grizzard also starred in that mounting. His co-stars at the time were Pamela Payton-Wright, David Patrick Kelly and Annalee Jefferies.
That production was to have traveled from Hartford to Off-Broadway's Second Stage, but those plans were later scuttled.
Albee's expressionistic drama takes place on a deserted stretch of beach, where retired couple Charlie and Nancy are strolling and talking about their future. With the arrival of another duo, Leslie and Sarah—who happen to be green, cold-blooded quadrupeds—the conversation takes on a more far-reaching tenor. The play won Albee his second Pulitzer Prize. The original Broadway production starred Deborah Kerr and Barry Nelson, with Frank Langella and Maureen Anderman lending support as the reptiles. Albee directed the show's 70-performance run. Grizzard was the original Nick in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and won his Tony for another Albee work, the 1996 revival of A Delicate Balance.
Sternhagen was most recently seen on Broadway in Steel Magnolias, while Weller is still on Broadway in Glengarry Glen Ross. Marvel's recent streak of praised performances include Hedda Gabler and A Second-Hand Memory.
