In addition to stage veteran Wilson and Ebert, the cast also features Greta Lee and Zoe Winters.
Here is the cast and guests on opening night:
4000 Miles, With Mary Louise Wilson and Gabriel Ebert, Opens Off-Broadway
Audiences familiar with Herzog's family play After the Revolution, which was seen at Playwrights Horizons in late 2010, will note that the character of Vera returns for her latest work. Wilson now takes on the role of Vera (played by Lois Smith in Revolution).
According to LCT3, "After losing his best friend while they were on a cross-country bike trip, 21-year-old Leo (Ebert) seeks solace from his feisty 91-year-old grandmother (Wilson) in her West Village apartment. 4000 Miles examines how these two outsiders find their way in today's world."
Citing the need to develop strong relationships with new artists and to develop a new audience, and recognizing the frustrations that playwrights have with the current system of readings and workshops, Lincoln Center Theater (under the direction of artistic director Andre Bishop and executive producer Bernard Gersten) created LCT3 to offer new artists fully staged productions. Paige Evans is the director of LCT3.
