The Signature Theatre's revival of Legacy Playwright Sam Shepard's Curse of the Starving Class opens May 13. Last seen in New York more than 20 years ago, the play tells the story of the struggling Tate family living a stagnant, unhappy existence in rural California.
Terry Kinney directs a cast led by Maggie Siff (Billions) and David Warshofsky (Taken) as Ella and Weston Tate, respectively, along with Lizzy DeClement (New Amsterdam) as Emma, Flora Diaz (Gotham) as Sergeant Malcolm, Gilles Geary (The I-Land) as Wesley, Esau Pritchett (The Night Of) as Ellis, and Andrew Rothenberg (The Walking Dead) as Taylor.
Curse of the Starving Class is playing in Signature's Irene Diamond Stage, where performances began April 23. The production continues its extended run through June 2.
The creative team is made up of Julian Crouch (scenic design), Sarah J. Holden (costume design), Natasha Katz (lighting design), Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (sound design and original music), William Berloni (animals), and Peter Pucci (choreographer). The production stage manager is Robert Bennett; casting is by Caparelliotis Casting.
