Tewkesbury will direct her play that features Cronyn (Cabaret, Return of the Prodigal) as artist Georgia O'Keeffe and the newly announced Tsoutsouvas (By Jeeves, Our Country's Good) as celebrated photographer and husband of O'Keeffe, Alfred Stieglitz.
The couple will be joined onstage by Sarah Baskin, Emilio Delgado and Michael Wolfe. Performances dates are Jan. 20, 2009-Feb. 7, 2009.
Press notes for Retrospective state, "It's 3 AM. Georgia O'Keeffe has been invited to write an essay for her late husband, Alfred Stieglitz, on the occasion of his 1978 Retrospective at the Met. During her wee hour review of erotic photographs Stieglitz took of her when they met, Stieglitz shows up. Fact, fiction, intimacy, ambition, and the unfinished business of husband and wife collide. Two artists vying for relevance and control rediscover the fine line between love and hate."
Manhattan Theatre Source has also announced that InGenius will stage the New York premiere of David Caudle's Likeness, featuring Brad Fraizer, Laurel Lockhart, Ryan Metcalf, Danielle Quisenberry, Stu Richel and Erin Wilhelmi.
Jessica Ammirati directs the Colonial Boston-set work about "an idealistic young painter [who] scores a career-making gig: the portrait of a wealthy landowner's spoiled daughter. But, there is more to the assignment than meets the eye. Artistic integrity battles ambition, and subject defies artist, as the first rumblings of revolution rattle the studio walls." Likeness runs Jan. 9-25, 2009. InGenius one-act play presentations include plays from Richard Vetere, Montserrat Mendez, L. Pontius, Vanda, Bill McMahon, Vincent Marano, Laura Schlachtmeyer, Ed Malin, John Watts, Pamela Yaco, John McKinney, Paul Jordan and Jennifer Thatcher.
