Daniel J. Travanti, Emmy winner and star of The Globe Theatres' 2000 hit, Old Wicked Songs, returns to the San Diego theatre to play Joe Keller in Arthur Miller's All My Sons, July 21-Aug. 31.
Richard Seer directs the tragedy, playing the Old Globe Theatre.
Travanti won two Emmy Awards as Captain Frank Furillo on TV's "Hill Street Blues." His stage credits include the 1965 New York Shakespeare Festival production of Othello with James Earl Jones, Broadway's Twigs opposite Sada Thompson and the Globe's 1977 production of The Taming of the Shrew.
All My Sons is set in the aftermath of World War II, a time when airplane parts manufacturer Keller made a killing — literally, as well as figuratively. His faulty cylinders caused the deaths of army fighter pilots, but also saved his fortune for his son, who returns home intent to marry. It is his son's return, however, that threatens to bring Joe's past to light and destroy the family he fought to protect.
Robin Pearson Rose plays Joe's wife, Kate, with Brian Hutchison as his son, Chris. Also in the cast are Russ Anderson (Dr. Bayless), Caren Browning (Sue Bayless), Melinda Page Hamilton (Ann Deever), Deborah Heinig (Lydia), Lucas Caleb Rooney (Frank) and Javen Tanner (George Deever). Single tickets to Globe Theatres productions are $25-$45. The Globe Theatres are located in Balboa Park. For reservations, call (619) 239 2255. The Globe Theatres are on the web at http://www.theglobetheatres.org.
