Mark Lamos — a 1991 Tony nominee for his direction of Our Country's Good — will direct the production, according to a press announcement. Previews will begin Nov. 1 with an official opening at the Beaumont Dec. 2.

No casting has been announced.

Cymbeline has been described as such: "The Bard pulls out all the stops for Cymbeline — a far-fetched adventure featuring a wicked queen, star-crossed lovers, long-lost children, riddles, bumbling villains and mistaken identities. This fantastical tale is brimming with improbable events, a cornucopia of colorful characters, sword fights and sleeping potions."

Mark Lamos made his Broadway debut as a performer, appearing in productions of The Love Suicide at Schofield Barracks, The Creation of the World and Other Business, Cyrano and Man and Superman. His Broadway directorial credits include Our Country's Good (Tony nomination), The Deep Blue Sea, The Gershwins' Fascinating Rhythm and the 2005 revival of Seascape. Lamos spent nearly a decade as artistic director of Hartford Stage.
