News   Richard Thomas Hopes Tennessee Williams Piece Distant Country Will Find Manhattan
 
Richard Thomas, star of the upcoming Democracy on Broadway, told Playbill On-Line's Harry Haun that he hopes the one-man show he starred in at the Kennedy Center, A Distant Country Called Youth, will find a home in New York City.

The show, adapted and directed by Steve Lawson based on early Tennessee Williams letters, ran June 11-13. It was part of the Kennedy Center's Tennessee Williams Celebration.

"Those letters are so charming, I think, and very revealing," Thomas said. "We're working to put the second edition of letters in now. There's going to be three volumes. I don't know where or what kind of venue it would have here, but I'm hoping."

Thomas starred Off-Broadway last season in Terrence McNally's The Stendahl Syndrome.
