Directed by Anders Cato, the production will play the New Brunswick, NJ, venue through Dec. 14. Opening night is Nov. 21.
Tony nominee Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll and Hyde) will head a cast that also includes David Adkins (from George Street's A Walk in the Woods), Matthew Boston (NJ Shakespeare Festival's Julius Cesar), William Hill (Steppenwolf's Broadway production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) and David Schramm (TV's "Wings").
In a statement George Street artistic director David Saint said, "When I saw the play on Broadway, I knew it was perfect for George Street. With its rich Irish story telling – laced with a devilish wit – this is the perfect antidote to the traditional holiday fare. I am always thrilled to welcome back the enormously talented director Anders Cato, as well as this remarkable cast."
"It's going to be a devil of a Christmas in Baldoyle, a coastal settlement just north of Dublin City," according to press notes. "The fog is dense and a group of friends have gathered for what seems to be a simple game of poker, until a mysterious stranger joins the game and raises the stakes damningly high."
George Street Playhouse is located at 9 Livingston Avenue in New Brunswick, NJ. For tickets, priced $28-$65, call (732) 246-7717 or visit www.GSPonline.org.
