News   Anouilh's Eurydice Rewrites the Classic Myth and TACT Passes It Along, March 3-10 Jean Anouilh's Eurydice gets a staged reading by The Actors Company Theatre (TACT) as part of the troupe's 10th anniversary season, for three performances March 3, 9 and 10 at Florence Gould Hall in Manhattan.

TACT bills the work this way: "When they meet, Orpheus is a street musician, barely making a living and Eurydice is an actress touring with a second rate theatre company in this brilliant modern reworking of the classic myth. This production of Eurydice features the U.S. premiere of a new translation by Peter Meyer."

TACT company member Kyle Fabel directs, with costumes by David Toser, lighting by Mary Louise Geiger and Music by John Slover.

The TACT cast for Eurydice features Kevin Henderson as Orpheus, James Murtaugh as His Father, Scott Shafer as Monsieur Henri, Richard Ferrone as the Waiter, Cynthia Darlow as the Cashier, Margaret Nichols as Eurydice, Cynthia Harris as Her Mother, Simon Jones as Vincent, Denis Butkus as the Stage Manager, Sean Arbuckle as Michel and the Hotel Waiter, Gregory Salata as Dulac, Nick Toren as the Police Secretary and Richard Ferrone as the Bus Driver.

TACT was founded in 1992, and is "dedicated to the presenting neglected or rarely produced plays of literary merit with a focus on creating theatre from its essence: the text and the actor's ability to bring it to life." The company is led by co-artistic directors Scott Alan Evans, Cynthia Harris and Simon Jones.

Performances play the company's new home at Florence Gould Hall at the French Institute Alliance Français, 55 E. 59th Street, 7:30 PM March 3, 2 PM March 9 and 7:30 PM March 10. For ticket or information, call (212) 307-4100 or visit www.TACTnyc.org, or visit the box office.
