David Staller, who in 2009 became the first person ever to produce and direct performances of every play Shaw wrote via the acclaimed Project Shaw series, will direct a cast that includes Sue Cremin (Off-Broadway's Honey Brown Eyes) in the title role with Steven Skybell (Broadway's Pal Joey, Wicked and The Full Monty) as Reverend James Morell and Will Bradley as Eugene Marchbanks. The cast also features Andrew Boyer (Mr. Burgess), Jordon Coughtry (Reverend Alexander Mill) and Elizabeth Morton (Proserpine Garnett).
Written by Shaw in 1895, Candida is described as "a dynamic comedy of self discovery that takes place over the course of a single day and promotes one of the great writer's most passionate causes: the importance of individual thought."
The creative team includes scenic designer Tony Cisek, costume designer Anna Lacivita, lighting designer Traci Klainer Polimeni, sound designer Karin Graybash and dialect coach Maggie Surovell.
Performances will continue through April 10.
Two River Theater Company is located at 21 Bridge Avenue, Red Bank, NJ. For tickets, call (732) 345-1400 or visit www.trtc.org.
