North Carolina Theatre has announced that Kate Goehring will replace Judy McLane in its production of Margaret Edson's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Wit. McLane withdrew from the production, which begins performances April 29, due to personal reasons.
Directed by Kate Galvin, the thought-provoking story is set to run in the AJ Fletcher Opera Theater at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh through May 8.
Goehring, who previously performed the play at Triad Stage, joins Tony winner Daisy Eagan, Jo Ann Cunningham, Dirk Lumbard and Logan James Hall. The company also includes Jess Barbour, Matthew Hager, Christopher J. Helton and Maggie Lea.
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 serves as properties mistress, and Bill Yates, Jr. is the technical director.
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.”
