Full Casting Announced For Mint Theater's What the Public Wants

News   Full Casting Announced For Mint Theater's What the Public Wants The Drama Desk and Obie Award-winning Mint Theater Company has announced the full cast for What the Public Wants, Arnold Bennett's spoof of tabloid journalism, which will perform Jan. 13-March 13, 2011,  at the Off-Broadway venue with an official opening set for Feb. 7.

Matthew Arbour will direct a cast that includes Ellen Adair, Mary Baird, Rob Breckenridge, Birgit Huppuch, Laurie Kennedy, Jeremy Lawrence, Douglas Rees and Marc Vietor. According to press notes, "What The Public Wants is Arnold Bennett’s sly satire on tabloid journalism — a lively look at life behind the headlines and proof that the more things change the more they stay the same. This clever 1909 comedy charts the efforts of media mogul Sir Charles Worgan to boost circulation as well as his social standing."

The creative team will also include set designer Rodger Hanna, costume designer Erin Murphy, lighting designer Marcus Doshi and sound designer Daniel Kluger.

The Mint Theater is located at 311 West 43rd Street. For tickets, call (212) 315-0231 or visit minttheater.org.
