News   The Pavilion — with Middendorf, Laurence and Milligan — Begins Westport Run May 13 Craig Wright's poignant comedy The Pavilion begins performances at the Westport Country Playhouse May 13.

Tracy Middendorf (Ah, Wilderness), Michael Laurence (Talk Radio) and Michael Milligan (The Golem) star in the romantic work set during a 20th high school reunion. Westport artistic associate Chad Rabinovitz directs the production.

The Pavilion, according to press notes, follows "Peter (Laurence) and Kari (Middendorf), who were the Class of 1988's Cutest Senior Couple. In high school, it seemed like everything in the universe worked to make their happiness possible. But at the end of senior year, Kari got pregnant and Peter ran off. Two decades later, the two have not seen each other since the day Peter left…and now he's come to their 20th high school reunion to get her back."

The Westport design team includes Hugh Landwehr (scenic design), Laurie Churba Kohn (costume design), Clifton Taylor (lighting design) and Ryan Rumery (sound design).

The Pavilion runs through May 31. Tickets are available by calling (203) 227-4177 or by visiting www.westportplayhouse.org.
