The Actors Company Theatre (TACT) has announced its 2016-17 season. The slate will include a rare New York revival of Oliver Goldsmith’s She Stoops To Conquer and the world premiere of The Gravedigger’s Lullaby by Jeff Talbott.
The Gravedigger’s Lullaby, directed by Jenn Thompson, is centered on Baylen, a hardworking gravedigger struggling to make ends meet. Performances will begin February 28 for an official opening on March 12, also at The Beckett Theatre.
She Stoops To Conquer, Oliver Goldsmith's 18th century British comedy about mismatched loves, will begin performances October 4 at The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row. Featuring direction by Scott Alan Evans, the revival will officially open October 16.
The cast will feature Simon Jones (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), Cynthia Darlow (Beyond Therapy), Mary Bacon (Giant), Jeremy Beck (Widowers’ Houses), MacKenzie Meehan (HBO’s Vinyl), James Prendergast (Happy Birthday) and Richard Thieriot (Clybourne Park). The cast will be reprising their roles from an earlier TACT Salon Series staging of She Stoops To Conquer.
