Bethany Anne Lind, Eugene Russell IV, Ellis Eugene Williams and Daniel Thomas May will lead the cast of a multicultural production of Thornton Wilder's Our Town for Atlanta's True Colors Theatre.

Artistic director Kenny Leon will stage the Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning classic that opens Feb. 25 and runs through March 21 at the Southwest Arts Center.

Lind will portray Emily Webb, with Russell as George Gibbs, with Williams and May sharing the role of the Stage Manager. The cast also includes Donna Biscoe (Mrs. Gibbs), Willa Bost (Woman in Balcony, Mrs. Soames), Jill Jane Clements (Mrs. Webb), Neal Ghant (Dr. Gibbs), Alexandra Jackson (Rebecca Gibbs, Lady in the Box), Jmichael (Man in the Auditorium, Simon Stimson), Mark Kincaid (Mr. Webb), Eric Little (Howie Newsome), Bill Murphey (Professor Willard, Constable Warren), as well as Andrea Gooden, Kislyck Halsey and Trevor Hill.

Set in New England at the turn of the 20th century, Our Town documents the lives of the townsfolk in Grovers Corners. Interest in the perennial work was reignited following the celebrated Hypocrites Theatre production re-imagined by David Cromer, which opened to raves Off-Broadway in February following a successful Chicago premiere.
