Greek Holiday Opens Off-Broadway March 18

News   Greek Holiday Opens Off-Broadway March 18 The Off-Broadway production of Academy Award winner Mayo Simon's Greek Holiday officially opens at the June Havoc Theatre March 18.

Sarah Knapp, Kathleen McElfresh and Tommy Schrider appear in the work under the direction of Stephen Hollis. Greek Holiday began performances March 6 and will run through April 5.

According to press notes, Greek Holiday asks, "Have you ever wanted to kill your spouse? Under the hot blue sky of a Greek Island, a married couple makes one last try at reconciliation. He lives in despair with memories of a passionate romance with another woman. She lives in silent fury over being abandoned. Their witty repartee masks fantasies of revenge. Shocking and funny, this scintillating black comedy explores the ache of lost love."

The production has designs by Richard Turick (set design), Bettina P. Bierly (costume design), Richard Currie (lighting design) and Scott Killian (original music and sound design).

Simon's plays include Walking to Waldheim, Happiness, Under Siege, A Rich Full Life, These Men, Elaine's Daughter, The Old Lady's Guide To Survival and A Twilight Romance.
