According to the official website for AWA Touring Services, Bill Kenwright plans to present the production, which will be directed by David Esbjornson, who staged the 2005 London mounting of A Few Good Men starring Rob Lowe. Production spokespersons could not confirm any details about a tour. Cain would take on the role of hotshot lawyer Daniel Kaffee. The actor — remembered for his portrayal of the Man of Steel in the television series "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" — recently appeared in the TV movie "The Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story" and on "Las Vegas."
Esbjornson (The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?) staged the Sorkin work for a 2005 production at the Theatre Royal Haymarket with Lowe and John Barrowman in the cast. He currently serves as artistic director for the Seattle Repertory Theatre.
Sorkin — who reteamed with "The West Wing" collaborator Thomas Schlamme on "Studio 60 on Sunset Strip" — is currently at work on The Farnsworth Invention, which will debut at La Jolla Playhouse as a Page To Stage workshop presentation Feb. 20-March 25, 2007.
Sorkin previously penned the plays Removing All Doubt, Hidden in This Picture, Making Movies and A Few Good Men. The latter opened on Broadway at the Music Box Theatre Nov. 15, 1989, starring Tom Hulce under the direction of Don Scardino. He adapted the play for the Rob Reiner 1992 screen version starring Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore. Other credits include the films "The American President" and "Malice."
