Complete casting has been announced for the North Carolina Theatre's upcoming production of Margaret Edson's Pulitzer Prize-winning Wit.
The cast will be led by Broadway’s Judy McLane (Vivan Bearing, Ph.D) and Tony winner Daisy Eagan (Susie Monahan, R.N., B.S.N.) with Jo Ann Cunningham (E.M. Ashford, D.Phil), Dirk Lumbard (Harvey Kelekian, M.D. and Mr. Bearing) and Logan James Hall (Jason Posner, M.D.). The company also includes Jess Barbour, Matthew Hager, Christopher J. Helton and Maggie Lea.
Directed by Kate Galvin, the thought-provoking story will run in the AJ Fletcher Opera Theater at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh April 29-May 8.
The creative team at North Carolina Theatre is led by artistic director Casey Hushion and producer Carolee Baxter with Chris Bernier (scenic design), Eric Collins (sound design), Kimberly Genna Bryant (costume design) and Charlie Morrison (lighting design). Aline Johnson will serve as properties mistress, and Bill Yates, Jr. is the technical director.
Playwright Edson used her work experience in a hospital as part of the inspiration for her play. Wit, according to press notes, is the “compelling story of a brilliant professor who becomes a student of life as she undergoes experimental treatment for cancer.”
