The cast includes Tony Crane as Jonathan, Katie Fabel as Grete, Ron Choularton as Nick and San Diego native Kelly McAndrew as Patricia. Opening is Aug. 7.

In Sight Unseen, "Jonathan Waxman is a celebrated American artist who yearns for something more in life. When he travels to England for his first European retrospective, he decides to visit his original muse and former lover, Patricia, whom he selfishly dismissed 15 years earlier. Waxman, whose work commands astronomical prices 'sight unseen,' wants to rediscover the passion and creativity that once fueled his work. But the visit — along with a troubling interview with a German art critic who questions his motives as a Jewish painter — leads to an unexpected crisis of identity. This incisive and humorous Pulitzer Prize-nominated and Obie Award-winning play deals with race, religion, and the meaning of art."

The creative team includes scenic designer Nick Fouch, costume designer Laurie Churba, lighting designer Chris Rynne, sound designer Paul Peterson and stage manager Tracy Skoczelas.

Tickets are available through subscription by calling (619) 23-GLOBE, visiting www.TheOldGlobe.org, or at The Old Globe Box Office at 1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park.
