Family Drama Levittown Opens Off-Broadway July 13

News   Family Drama Levittown Opens Off-Broadway July 13 The limited Off-Broadway return of Marc Palmieri's ensemble drama Levittown officially opens Off-Broadway July 13.

After an acclaimed run in 2006, director George Demas (Krapp, 39) again stages the play, which began previews July 8 and will run through Aug. 1 at the Theatre at St. Clement's.

The cast features Susan Bennett, Tristan Colton, Curzon Dobell, Dane Knell, Todd Lawson, Tyler Pierce and Deborah Tranelli.

According to press notes, "Kevin Briggs, the grandson of a decorated World War II veteran and FDNY Captain, returns early from college to learn that his sister Colleen — after some trying times — is about to be married. As the family celebrates the upcoming wedding, Kevin attempts to complete this happiness by reconciling his sister with the abusive father who left them years before. Amidst the thin walls of their home, the members of this family are forced to confront a concealed history, the self-destructive nature that has plagued them for generations, and the failure of the tidy truths onto which they have desperately held... in Levittown."

Scenic designer Michele Spadaro, currently represented Off-Broadway with Our Town, designed the set that includes a reproduction of a Levittown home. Levittown also has costume design by Jennifer Bayly, lighting design by Sonia Baidya and sound design by Steve Fontaine.
