Stage and screen actor Dan Lauria is back Off-Broadway in the premiere of The Stone Witch, a new play by Shem Bitterman about creativity, ambition, and the power of the imagination. Lauria is known for playing the father in the Emmy-winning ABC series The Wonder Years and was seen on Broadway in Lombardi and A Christmas Story: The Musical.
Directed by Steve Zuckerman, The Stone Witch began performances at The Westside Theatre - Upstairs March 12. Completing the cast are Rupak Ginn (Shakespeare at Fenway, Royal Pains) and Carolyn McCormick (Equus, Law & Order).
In The Stone Witch, a famed children’s book writer and illustrator, played by Lauria, is long overdue to release his next masterpiece. In an attempt to reignite his creativity, an ambitious editor (McCormick) pairs the veteran with a talented young writer (Ginn). The show will officially open March 25.
