News   Broadway Actors Line Up for TACT Revival of Beth Henley's Abundance
 
The Actors Company Theatre have announced the cast for their staging of Pulizter winner Beth Henley's play Abundance. It will feature Broadway actors Kelly McAndrew (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Tracy Middendorf (Ah, Wilderness!), Jeff Talbott (Sly Fox), Todd Lawson (Summer and Smoke) and Ted Koch (The Pillowman).

The show will be directed by TACT Co-Artistic Director and Drama Desk nominee Jenn Thomspon, and performances will run Feb. 17-March 28 at the Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row.

According to The Actors Company Theatre, Abundance recounts "the breathtaking tall tale of Bess and Macon, two mail-order brides who are lured to the plains of Wyoming by the promise of new beginnings. As wild and unpredictable as the untamed West itself, this fierce and funny adventure spans a 25-year journey, unearthing along the way the dark underside of American mythology and the unbreakable bonds of female friendship."

The creative team is comprised of Wilson Chin (sets), Tracy Christensen (costumes), Philip Rosenberg (lights) and Toby Algya (sound).

This will be the first time that the play has been seen in New York in 25 years. Its New York premiere was in 1990 at the Manhattan Theatre Club.

TACT is a critically acclaimed and Drama Desk nominated Off-Broadway company of actors that "reveals, reclaims and reimagines great plays of literary merit.” Previous productions include Tennessee Williams’ The Eccentricities of a Nightingale, David Storey’s Home and Edward Bond’s The Sea.
