Much Ado will launch the season, May 27-June 15. Shakespeare Theatre artistic director Bonnie J. Monte will direct Bullock and Sherman Howard (Benedick) in the Bard's comedy. Bullock, who starred in Ragtime and A Class Act on Broadway, is married to Howard. The Glass Menagerie is next, with Broadway's former Jekyll & Hyde at the helm. No casting has been announced for the heart-rending memory play, which runs June 24-July 20. The versatile and hard-working Cuccioli was most recently seen Off-Broadway in Temporary Help.
The season is completed by Moliere's That Scoundrel Scapin (July 16-Aug. 3); Shakespeare's King John (July 29-Aug. 17); Shaw's Pygmalion (Sept. 2-28); Shakespeare's Othello (Oct. 28-Nov. 23); and A Child's Christmas in Wales (Dec. 2-28).
The theatre is located at 36 Madison Avenue in Madison, NJ. For tickets, call (973) 408-5600.
