Edward Herrmann, Blythe Danner and Philip Bosco will officially begin hearing Ancestral Voices at Lincoln Center Theater on Oct. 18, when the new A.R. Gurney play by that name opens. Voices has been playing in previews since Sept. 19. Also in the line-up are David Aaron Baker (Bosoms and Neglect) and Elizabeth Wilson (the upcoming Waiting in the Wings).
Voices plays the Mitzi Newhouse Theatre on Sunday and Monday evenings -- the LCT hit musical Contact's dark nights.
In Voices, five actors sit on stage and read the script (making it easy for changing casts) about a family whose lives are turned inside out when young Eddie's grandmother unexpectedly divorces his grandfather to marry the grandfather's best friend.
Herrmann told Playbill On-Line (Aug. 19) he would stay with Voices until late fall and will then fly west to star in Neil Simon's The Dinner Party, set to premiere at the Mark Taper Forum Dec. 2.
Tickets for any of Lincoln Center Theatre's shows are available through Tele Charge at (212) 239-6200. --By Robert Simonson
