The Mint's first production of Rutherford & Son began just days before the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001. Mint artistic director Jonathan Bank said the recent 10th anniversary of 9/11 made him reconsider Rutherford & Son, which was well-received by critics, but was overshadowed by the events of the time.
The original cast returned for the current staging that began previews Feb. 4. It will play an extended run through April 8 under the direction of Richard Corley.
The cast includes Robert Hogan (Blood and Gifts) as Rutherford, Dale Soules, David Van Pelt, Eli James (Temporal Powers), Allison Mclemore (The Madras House), James Patrick Nelson (Three Sisters), Sandra Shipley (Importance of Being Earnest, Blithe Spirit) and Sara Surrey (Lost In Yonkers).
The production has set design by Vicki R. Davis, costume design by Charlotte Palmer-Lane, lighting design by Nicole Pearce, and sound design by Ellen Mandel and Jane Shaw.
The Mint previously announced that it would stage the first-ever revival of Martha Gellhorn and Virginia Cowles' WW II comedy Love Goes to Press, beginning May 26.
