Chris Noth and Chris Pine star in the West Coast premiere of Beau Willimon's Farragut North, currently playing at Los Angeles' Geffen Playhouse.
Pine joins Noth and original New York cast members Dan Bittner, Olivia Thirlby and Isiah Whitlock. Mia Barron and Justin Huen round out the L.A. cast. Doug Hughes — who staged the Washington, DC-set campaign drama for Atlantic Theater Company Off-Broadway — returns to direct at the Geffen.
"Set against the backdrop of a close presidential race, Farragut North is a timely tale of hubris, loyalty and the lust for power," according to show notes.
When The Great Comet opened in November, no one knew it would end up the most Tony-nominated show of the season. Steele gives us an inside view of the Broadway opening before the praise came pouring in.
