The Mint Theater celebrates the official opening of its production of Lillian Hellman's Days to Come August 26. The limited engagement, helmed by J.R. Sullivan and playing at Theatre Row, has been extended through October 6.
In Days to Come, a labor strike in a small Ohio town threatens to tear apart both the community and a family. The cast is made up of Mary Bacon, Janie Brookshire, Larry Bull, Chris Henry Coffey, Dan Daily, Ted Deasy, Roderick Hill, Betsy Hogg, Kim Martin-Cotten, Geoffrey Allen Murphy, and Evan Zes.
The Mint's production, which began August 2, marks the second revival in New York since the play's short-lived Broadway debut. Days to Come is Hellman's second play and ran on Broadway for just a week in 1936.
The Off-Broadway revival features scenic design by Harry Feiner, costume design by Andrea Varga, lighting design by Christian DeAngelis, sound design by Jane Shaw, and prop design by Joshua Yocom. Casting is by Stephanie Klapper, CSA. Rod Kinter serves as fight director.
Hellman's plays include The Little Foxes, which was recently revived on Broadway starring Cynthia Nixon and Laura Linney, as well as Watch on the Rhine, Toys in the Attic, The Lark, and The Children's Hour.
Tickets can be purchased online at Telecharge.com, by phone at (212) 239-6200, or in person at the Theatre Row Box Office.
