Mint Theater Company has announced the cast for its upcoming revival of The Lucky One, the 1919 play by Winnie-the-Pooh author and playwright A.A. Milne. The production, helmed by Jesse Marchese, will mark the first revival in New York since its 1922 Broadway debut.
Performances will begin April 14 at the Beckett Theater at Theatre Row, ahead of a May 18 opening. The Off-Broadway engagement is scheduled through June 25.
Marchese will direct a cast made up of Paton Ashbrook, Ari Brand, Andrew Fallaize, Michael Frederic, Robert David Grant, Wynn Harmon, Cynthia Harris, Deanne Lorette, Peggy J. Scott, and Mia Hutchinson-Shaw.
The Lucky One follows the rivalry between brothers Gerald and Bob. When one finds himself in serious legal trouble and the other fails to come to his rescue, years of resentment come to the surface, resulting in a long overdue confrontation.
The Lucky One will have scenic design by Vicki R. Davis; costume design by Martha Hally; lighting design by Christian DeAngelis; and sound design by Toby Algya. Casting is by Stephanie Klapper.
