Target Margin artistic director David Herskovits will direct Purva Bedi (CSC's Old Comedy), Satya Bhabha (King of Shadows), Curt Hostetter (Hamlet), McKenna Kerrigan, Dara Seitzman (Iron Curtain) and Raphael Nash Thompson (Edward the Second) in Williams' "dreamlike meditation on alienation, beauty and death." 10 Blocks, initially workshopped by Elia Kazan at the Actors Studio in 1948, stands as the precursor to what ultimately became Williams' Camino Real. 10 Blocks on the Camino Real, presented as originally published by Williams, will officially open Jan. 18, 2009, and play a limited engagement through Jan. 31, 2009 at the Ohio Theater.
Designing the production are Lenore Doxsee (set and lighting), Asta Bennie Hostetter (costumes) and Jim "Sneaky" Breitmeier (sound) with musical direction by David Rosenmeyer.
As previously reported, Target Margin will also explore Tennessee Williams' collaborations with director Elia Kazan in The Really Big Once. This new play, centering on the period from 1948-1953, "will be based on correspondence, notebooks, memoirs and other documentary material between these two creative giants," according to press notes.
