Theatre veteran Theodore Bikel returns to the New York stage in the Jewish Repertory Theatre's new production of Arje Shaw's The Gathering. The show began previews May 29 for a June 10 opening.
The Gathering takes place during the Reagan years and concerns three generations of the same family as they clash over their duties as Americans. Also in the cast are Robert Fass, Susan Warrick Hasho and Peter Hermann. Rebecca Taylor directs.
Bikel is perhaps most famous for his Tony-nominated appearance as Captain Von Trapp in the original production of The Sound of Music. He is also well known for his many turns as Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. Other Broadway credits include The Lark, The Rope Dancers and The Inspector General. Recently, he acted in The Disputation at the Coconut Grove Playhouse in Florida. His films include "The Defiant Ones" and "The African Queen."
