News   Theatre for a New Audience's Engaged to Go On in Honor of Gutierrez
 
The final production of the 2003-04 Theatre for a New Audience season, the W.S. Gilbert farce Engaged, which was to be directed by two-time Tony Award winner Gerald Gutierrez (The Heiress, A Delicate Balance) will go on in the late director's honor.

TFANA artistic director Jeffrey Horowitz said the company will still produce the play slated to begin later this season, April 20, 2004 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. No replacement director has been announced at this time. The director was scheduled to continue auditions on Dec. 29. Gutierrez, however, died in his sleep of respitory failure at the age of 53.

Engaged was penned in 1877 by half of the famous Gilbert and Sullivan team. The play will end the TFANA 25th season which includes the current staging of The Last Letter and the upcoming production of Pericles directed by Bartlett Sher.
