The Huntington Theatre Company production of Frank McGuinness' Observe the Sons of UIster Marching Towards the Somme will begin performances at The Wilbur Theatre March 30-May 5. The production starring Scott Wolf and Justin Theroux is produced with Broadway in Boston, Clear Channel Entertainment.
The two stars will reprise their roles from the Williamstown Theatre Festival production for director Nicholas Martin — Huntington's artistic director. Sons of Ulster centers on a group of Irish Protestant Nationalists who volunteer to fight in Europe at the opening of World War I. The Williamstown staging also starred Richard Easton and David Aaron Baker. Filling out the Huntington cast will be returning castmates Jason Butler Harner, Christopher Fitzgerald, Jonathan Walker and Rod McLachlan.
Both Wolf and Theroux have enjoyed screen time as well as stage time. Wolf is probably best remembered as Bailey Salinger on the television drama, "Party of Five." He also has donned the stage in Sideman on Broadway and Far East and Dead End at Williamstown. Theroux is currently featured in David Lynch's "Mullholland Drive" and has been seen in The Three Sisters on Broadway, Shopping and Fucking and Twelfth Night.
