News   PHOTO CALL: Olympia Dukakis Stars Off-Broadway in Tennessee Williams' Milk Train
 
Tennessee Williams' The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore, a rarely seen title, began its Off-Broadway revival Jan. 7. Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis plays Flora Goforth, a widow penning her memoirs.

Michael Wilson (The Orphans' Home Cycle) directs the Roundabout Theatre Company staging at its Off-Broadway home at the Laura Pels Theatre. Performances play to April 3.

Opening night is Jan. 30. Wilson's cast includes Curtis Billings (as Giulio), Elisa Bocanegra (as Simonetta), Olympia Dukakis (as Flora Goforth), Edward Hibbert (as Witch of Capri), Maggie Lacey (as Frances Black) and Darren Pettie (as Christopher Flanders).

Here is a first look at the production:


Here's how Roundabout characterizes the play: "In this haunting Tennessee Williams drama, Olympia Dukakis stars as Flora Goforth, a wealthy American widow. In her picturesque Italian mountaintop home, Flora has detached from the world in order to write her memoirs. When a handsome and mysterious young visitor arrives without warning to keep Flora company in her final hours, this dreamlike play blossoms into a fascinating meditation on life and death."

The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore will play Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 7:30 PM with a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday matinee at 2 PM.

Ticket prices range from $71-81. Tickets are available by calling Roundabout Ticket Services at (212) 719-1300, going online at www.roundabouttheatre.org or visiting the Laura Pels Box Office (111 West 46th Street).
