Complete casting has been announced for the American Conservatory Theater production of Kate Hamill’s Vanity Fair, a new stage adaptation of William Thackeray’s classic 19th-century novel.
Directed by Jessica Stone (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), performances are set for April 17–May 12 at A.C.T.’s Geary Theater (415 Geary St.). Opening night is scheduled for April 24.
The cast will feature Rebekah Brockman (The Burial at Thebes at Irish Repertory Theatre), Dan Hiatt (The Birthday Party and Hamlet at A.C.T.), Alyssa Wilmoth Keegan (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at Round House Theatre), Anthony Michael Lopez (Othello at New York Theatre Workshop), Adam Magill (Macbeth at Berkeley Repertory Theatre), Maribel Martinez (Julius Caesar at The Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park), and Vincent Randazzo (A Walk on the Moon and Hamlet at A.C.T.).
Ambitious Becky Sharp may not have been born with wealth or status, but she’s determined to attain both—at any cost. Armed with fierce wit and calculating charm, Becky forges her own path through London’s high society, dealing herself into a game she was never invited to play.
The creative team includes scenic designer Alexander Dodge, costume designer Jennifer Moeller, lighting designer David Weiner, sound designer and composer Jane Shaw, and choreographer and Connor Gallagher.
Vanity Fair is a co-production with Shakespeare Theatre Company.
