Rebecca Taichman (The Scene, Orlando) stages the play that officially opens Feb. 11 for a run through March 10. Lincoln Center Theater established LCT3 in 2008 to develop and produce the work of new artists and to cultivate new audiences.
Greenidge (Milk Like Sugar, Bossa Nova) authored that play that concerns an African-American family who may lose their home when an old deal comes back to haunt them.
Here's how it's billed: "When an upwardly mobile African-American couple wants to buy a home in an all-white neighborhood of 1950’s Boston, they pay a struggling Irish family to 'ghost-buy' a house on their behalf. Fifty years later, the Irish family wants 'their' house back. Moving across two eras, Luck of the Irish explores racial and social issues and the universal longing for home."
Blake (Joe Turner's Come and Gone, The Merchant of Venice, Hurt Village), Davis (Passing Strange, "Smash"), Eaves (Observe The Sons of Ulster, A Behanding in Spokane) and Hogan (Blood and Gifts, "M*A*S*H") are joined by Frank Harts (A Raisin in the Sun), Jenny O'Hara (The Odd Couple), Carra Patterson (Wit), Amanda Quaid (Equus, Cock) and Victor Williams (A Small Fire).
