McCarter's artistic director, Emily Mann, directs the production, which boasts Tony Award winner Tyne Daly as Mother, Brian Murray as Dr., Charlotte Parry as Maureen and Stephen Payne as The Man. Colin Donnell and Michael Esper play the identical twins, who are both named Otto.
The production which runs through Feb. 17 in the Berlind Theatre features set design by Thomas Lynch, costume design by Jennifer von Mayrhauser, lighting design by Kenneth Posner and soundscape by Darron L. West.
Me, Myself and I, according to press notes, is described as such: "When a pair of identical twin brothers are both named Otto, how's a mother supposed to keep them straight? Master playwright Edward Albee is in top form with this dark, funny and moving play that takes sibling rivalry to existential heights."
Edward Albee won Best Play Tony Awards for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and The Goat or Who Is Sylvia? He was also Tony nominated for The Ballad of the Sad Café, Tiny Alice, A Delicate Balance and Seascape. Albee is also the recipient of three Pulitzer Prizes, the Gold Medal in Drama from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, the Kennedy Center Honors and the National Medal of Arts.
The McCarter Theatre is located at 91 University Place in Princeton, NJ. Tickets are available by calling (609) 258-2787 or by visiting www.mccarter.org.
