Performances begin July 25 prior to an official opening July 31. The production will continue through Aug. 24 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre.
Directed by Richard Seer, the cast includes Roger Forbes as Wilfred Bond (the National Theatre under Sir Laurence Olivier, London's Garrick and Cambridge Theatres, founding member of Geva Theatre in New York), Robert Foxworth as Reginald Paget (August: Osage County, Twelve Angry Men), Elizabeth Franz as Jean Horton (Morning's at Seven, Death of a Salesman) and Jill Tanner as Cecily Robson (Dividing the Estate, Enchanted April).
"From the author of The Dresser comes an uplifting comedy recently made into a major motion picture," press notes state. "Three former opera singers, Reginald, Cecily, and Wilfred, lead a harmonious existence at a home for retired musicians — until Reginald's ex-wife, grande dame Jean Horton, arrives. As long-ago grudges surface and old scores are settled, the quartet heads back into the rehearsal room for one final encore."
The creative team includes Ralph Funicello (scenic design), Charlotte Devaux (costume design), York Kennedy (lighting design), Christopher R. Walker (sound design), Nicolas Reveles (opera consultant) and Annette Yé (stage manager).
