The Select (The Sun Also Rises), a staging of Ernest Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises," will be directed by John Collins. The production, which will run Oct. 26-Nov. 4, is described as such: "With cutting wit, doomed romance, and a live bullfight that has to be seen to be believed, this is an exquisite, wine-soaked homage to one of the finest novels ever written." The award-winning Sondheim-Lapine musical Into the Woods will play the New Jersey venue May 3-June 2, 2013. Reimagined by Fiasco Theater, the production will feature direction by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld. Ten actors and a single piano will bring the fairy-tale themed musical to life.
As previously reported, the upcoming season will open Sept. 7 with Christopher Durang’s world-premiere comedy, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. The McCarter season will also include Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance, which will run Jan. 18-Feb. 17, 2013. The production will be directed by McCarter artistic director Emily Mann. And, director Rebecca Taichman will helm Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, which is scheduled for an April 2-21, 2013, engagement.
