Jerry Ruiz (Love Goes to Press, Basilica) directs the play that had its premiere in 1931 at the Belasco Theatre. The Off-Broadway revival runs through Oct. 20.
In addition to Bergman (Peter and the Starcatcher) and Johnson (Hello, Dolly!), the cast features Cliff Bemis, Bernardo Cubria, Kathryn Kates, Carole Healey, Natalie Kuhn, Brian MacDonald, Jennifer McVey and Rachel Moulton.
According to the Mint, "Philip Goes Forth tells the story of a young man who rebels against his father and a career in the family business. He leaves home and ventures to New York to write plays without his father's support or blessing, but with this warning: 'Don't imagine, whenever you get tired floating around up there in the clouds that you can drop right back into your place down here — that isn't the way things go!' Kelly's humorous examination of one young dreamer remains an exquisite portrait of coming-of-age in modern America."
The production has scenic design by Steven C. Kemp, costume design by Carisa Kelly, lighting design by Christian DeAngelis and sound design by Toby Algya.
