News   Marco Greco Is New Diego Rivera in Wendy Beckett's Modotti in NYC
 
Marco Greco will join the cast of Wendy Beckett's Modotti, portraying artist Diego Rivera in the play inspired by the story of photographer-activist Tina Modotti, at Off-Broadway's Acorn Theatre June 8-July 3. Opening night is June 11.

Greco (Behind the Counter with Mussolini, Den of Thieves) will replace the previously announced Thom Christopher as Rivera, joining Alysia Reiner (Pentecost, "Sideways") as Modotti. The cast will also include Jack Gwaltney, Stacey Linnartz, Andy Paris, Dee Pelletier, Josh Tyson and Mark Zeisler. Beckett (Anais Nin, One of Her Lives) will direct the play, with a creative team including set designer John McDermott, costume designer Theresa Squire, lighting designer Lauren Phillips, sound designer Ray Thomas, and projection designer Brett Heath.

Tina Modotti is described in press notes as "a sleek and sensuous photographer, silent film actress, activist and communist subversive. Modotti fled to Mexico lured by the revolution and artistic excitement, where she tore through the male dominated political forums almost as fast as she tore through her lovers. Taking on controversial issues is a young person's adventure, one that is bound to have dire consequences."

Acorn Theatre is located at Theatre Row on 410 West 42nd Street. For tickets, call (212) 279-4200 or visit ticketccentral.com. For more information, visit modottitheplay.com.
