Edward Albee's 1975 Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy-fantasy Seascape will be staged Jan. 13-25 by Actors Theatre of Louisville. The play replaces Jon Robin Baitz's Three Hotels, which was previously scheduled for that particular time slot.
According to a written statement by the theatre's producing director, Jon Jory, the switch was made because "the Albee play presents a greater opportunity to showcase a quartet of popular ATL actors" -- Karen Grassle, Twyla Hafferman, V. Craig Heidenreich and Fred Major.
Seascape, set on a deserted stretch of beach, revolves around a middle-aged couple (Grassle and Major) who are joined in conversation by two giant lizards (Hafferman and Heidenreich).
The director is William McNulty, a longtime resident actor at ATL.
The Albee play will be performed in ATL's 318-seat Bingham Theatre, (while Private Lives plays in the 637-seat Brown Auditorium from Jan. 1-25). For tickets, call (502) 584-1205.
