News   PHOTO CALL: Cactus Flower Stars Maxwell Caulfield, Lois Robbins and Jenni Barber Meet the Press The cast of the upcoming New York revival of Abe Burrows' classic farce Cactus Flower greeted the press for a photo op Feb. 1. Director Michael Bush's company features Maxwell Caulfield, Lois Robbins and Jenni Barber.

Cactus Flower, according to producers, tells the story of "Julian Winston (Caulfield), a handsome, middle-aged Park Avenue dentist and bachelor, who, to dodge commitment, tells his much younger girlfriend Toni (Barber) that he is married. When Toni demands to meet his wife he recruits his prickly nurse (Robbins) to play the part and love blossoms in the most unexpected places!"

Here is a look at the cast and director:

The complete cast includes Maxwell Caulfield (Chicago, An Inspector Calls, "Grease 2"), Lois Robbins ("Ryan's Hope"), Jenni Barber (From Up Here, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), Emily Walton (August: Osage County), Anthony Reimer ("Rescue Me"), John Herrera (The Times, They Are a Changin'), Robin Skye (Parade) and Jeremy Bobb (Is He Dead?).

 

Cactus Flower premiered on Broadway in December 1965, where it played 1,234 performances and starred Lauren Bacall. Gene Zaks later directed a 1969 film adaptation, which introduced Goldie Hawn on the big screen and also starred Walter Matthau and Ingrid Bergman.
