Anne Kauffman (This Wide Night, The Thugs) directs the main stage production that will run through July 25. In addition to Colin (Old Acquaintance, "Gossip Girl"), Buckley (Bernarda Alba), Essandoh (Death of a Salesman,"Blood Diamond") and Daly ("Wings," "Private Practice"), the cast features Clea Alsip, Lauren Blumenfeld, John Bedford Lloyd, Michael Bradley Cohen, Ned Eisenberg (Awake and Sing), Daniel Hartley (A Flea in Her Ear), Lucas Kavner, Ben Mehl, Tom Nelis (Enron), James Joseph O’Neil (Present Laughter), Dominic Spillane and Ariel Woodiwiss.

According to Williamstown, "One evening can alter the course of many lives. Into a Manhattan couple's nightly discussions of art deals and dinner reservations, a charismatic stranger arrives with stories of a famous father and promises of walk-on roles in 'Cats: The Movie.' Could he possibly be for real?"

Designing Six Degrees are Antje Ellermann (scenic design), Miranda Hoffman (costume design), David Weiner (lighting design) and Fitz Patton (sound design).

Guare's plays include House of Blue Leaves, Four Baboons Adoring the Sun, Landscape of the Body and the book to the musical Sweet Smell of Success. He earned Tony Awards for the book and lyrics to the 1971 musical Two Gentleman of Verona. His epic play A Free Man of Color will arrive on Broadway in November at Lincoln Center Theater's Vivian Beaumont Theater under the direction of George C. Wolfe.
