Andy Prosky and James Sutorius play estranged brothers reconnecting when they sort through their dead father's estate. Leisa Mather is also featured. The project was first envisioned and announced as a revival for Robert Prosky and his two sons John and Andy; after Robert's death, the two sons were announced to continue with the show, but John dropped out earlier this year.

Richard Seer directs. Performances play the Globe's Arena Stage at the San Diego Museum of Art's James S. Copley Auditorium through June 14.

"The Price tells the story of two brothers who reunite, after 16 years, to sell off the remains of their family’s possessions," according to the Old Globe. "Along with the old furniture are memories of choices the two brothers made when their father's fortunes crumbled. One gave up his education and became a policeman to support his ailing father, the other left his family and went on to become a successful doctor. As they try to arrive at a price with an eccentric antiques dealer, they are forced to settle up in more ways than one as each man reexamines his life and uncovers family secrets."

Emmy Award nominee Chianese is widely known for his work as Uncle Junior on the HBO series, "The Sopranos." He'll play Gregory Soloman, Andy Prosky will be Victor Franz, Leisa Mather is Esther Franz and James Sutorius is Walter Franz.

Tickets are available by calling (619) 23-GLOBE, online at www.TheOldGlobe.org, or by visiting the Globe Box Office at 1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park.
