News   Signature's Incident at Vichy Filmed for "Theater Close-Up" Series
 
Signature Theatre's Off-Broadway revival of Incident at Vichy, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Arthur Miller, will be featured in the second season of "Theater Close-Up" on Thirteen. The haunting production was filmed Dec. 16 and will be broadcast in spring 2016.

It will be the fifth presentation of the second season, which launched Oct. 15, following Rasheeda Speaking, Fashions for Men, Wiesenthal and Repairing a Nation. The broadcast will be made available online to the tri-state area only for a limited period.

The second season of "Theater Close-Up" is hosted by Tony-winning actress Blythe Danner and features a selection of Off-Broadway plays, captured live onstage.

Incident at Vichy officially opened Nov. 15 following previews that began Oct. 27. Among the cast of the World War II-set drama, which was helmed by Michael Wilson and closed Dec. 20, was Richard Thomas, who is a two-time Golden Globe nominee and Emmy winner for his long-running role in the TV series "The Waltons."

The cast also included David Abeles (Once), Curtis Billings (The Trip to Bountiful), James Carpinello (Rock of Ages), AJ Cedeño (Strawberry & Chocolate), Quinlan Corbett (Rosario and the Gypsies), Brian Cross (Desire), Demosthenes Chrysan (Golden Boy), Jonathan Gordon (Orphans), Tony nominee Jonathan Hadary (Gypsy), Alex Morf (Of Mice and Men), Tony Award nominee Jonny Orsini (The Nance), Darren Pettie (Butley), John Procaccino (The Qualms), Alec Shaw, Derek Smith (Desire) and Evan Zes (The Freedom of The City).

Taking place in Vichy, France, during the Nazi occupation, the play sees a group of people called into an interrogation room under suspicious circumstances in an effort to reveal the Jews among them. As foreboding rumors of concentration camps begin to circulate, the men battle over politics, philosophy and an escape. Incident at Vichy was last seen on Broadway in 1964 and returned to the Signature Theatre for the first time since Miller's residency there in 1997-98. The design team for the recent acclaimed revival included Jeff Cowie (scenic design), David C. Woolard (costume design), David Lander (lighting design), John Gromada (sound design), Rocco DiSanti (projection design), Deborah Hecht (dialect coach) and Mark Olsen (fight direction). Robert Bennett was the production stage manager. Casting was by Telsey + Company, Karyn Casl, CSA.
