Last chance to catch God's Heart -- Craig Lucas' drama at Lincoln Center's Mitzi Newhouse Theatre closes May 25, after 36 previews and 57 regular performances.
The author of Reckless and Prelude To A Kiss made his Lincoln Center debut with this drama about the unlikely connections among six inhabitants of a large American city. Opening April 6, the play was the first at the Newhouse since its partial renovation.
Starring in God's Heart are Amy Brenneman, formerly of TV's "NYPD Blue," and Julie Kavner, co-star of "Rhoda" and "Tracy Ullman Show," actress in various Woody Allen films, and the voice of Marge Simpson. Brenneman (Janet) appeared Off-Broadway in Mac Wellman's Sincerity Forever and at Yale Rep in St. Joan Of The Stockyard. Kavner has appeared in plays at L.A.'s Westwood Theatre and San Diego's Old Globe.
The play had its world premiere two seasons ago at Trinity Repertory Theatre, directed by Norman Rene.
Also starring are Seven Guitars' Viola Davis, Kia Joy Goodwin (Annie), Kevin Carroll (Angels In America), John Benjamin Hickey (Love! Valour! Compassion!), Lisa Leguillou (Chronicle Of A Death Foretold) and Nedehru Roberts. Joe Mantello, who directed L!V!C! and What's Wrong With This Picture on Broadway, staged the piece. A revival of Lucas' Blue Window was directed by Mantello last season at Manhattan Theatre Club. Sets for Heart are by Robert Brill, costumes by Toni-Leslie James, lighting by Brian MacDevitt, projections by Batwin + Robin Productions, and sound design/original music by Daniel Moses Schreier.
