News   Egolf, Sella and Story Are Madcap Menage a Trois of DC Design for Living The trio of Bohemians of Noël Coward's Design for Living are in rehearsal in Washington, DC, for the upcoming Shakespeare Theatre Company revival.

In the 1933 comedy about the perils of fame and the pitfalls of mixing love, creativity and friendship, Gretchen Egolf (Broadway's Ring Round the Moon and Jackie, TV's "Roswell," "Journeyman," "Martial Law") is decorator Gilda, Tom Story (DC Studio Theatre's The Invention of Love and A Number) is painter Otto and Robert Sella (London's The Lady From Dubuque, Broadway's Side Man and Cabaret) is playwright Leo. Performances play May 12-June 28 in the Lansburgh Theatre. Additional casting and creative team will be announced.

According to STC, "Filled with Coward's trademark sparkling wit, Design for Living follows three glamorous Bohemians — Otto, Leo and Gilda — as they fall in and out of love with each other. Moving restlessly from Paris to London to New York, the three both pursue and repel each other in an ever-more-maddening love triangle. Michael Kahn directs this provocative and surprisingly moving modern comedy classic."
