Dear Mr. Williams, a solo show written and performed by Bryan Batt, will present an invitation-only workshop in New York City October 12. Presented by Wespoke Productions and Badway on Broadway, the show—first seen at the 2018 New Orleans Tennessee Williams Literary Festival—is developed and directed by Michael Wilson.
As Batt, a native New Orleanian, puts it: "The tumultuous journey from adolescence to adulthood is one we all must take, but it's oh-so-much more exciting and poetic with Tennessee Williams as your guide."
Best known to nationwide audiences as Salvatore Romano on Mad Men (for which he won two SAG Awards as part of the Outstanding Ensemble), Batt is a veteran of the Broadway stage. He made his debut in the original production of Cats, replacing for Munkustrap. He later joined Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Starlight Express, followed by Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. He played Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast and appeared in the original Broadway production of Sunset Boulevard. He was also featured in The Scarlet Pimpernel, Saturday Night Fever, and Seussical. Most recently, he understudied the role of Albin in the 2004 revival of La Cage Aux Folles.
