Powerhouse's The Power of Duff Will Star Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Westfeldt
13 Jun 2012
Stage and screen stars Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Westfeldt will head the cast of Stephen Belber's The Power of Duff at the New York Stage and Film's Powerhouse Theater this summer.
Peter DuBois (Sons of the Prophet, Becky Shaw) will direct the July 18-29 run on the Vassar College campus.
Joining Kinnear ("Little Miss Sunshine," "As Good As It Gets") and Westfeldt (Wonderful Town, "Kissing Jessica Stein") will be Desmin Borges, Dominic Fumusa, Neil Huff, Russell G. Jones, Ben Platt and Maura Tierney.
Here's how the play is billed: "In The Power of Duff, Charles Duff (Kinnear), a news anchor in a mid-market backwater, has an unexpected spiritual awakening on live TV. His prayers, and their answers, change his audience, his family, and his own life forever."
Belber's plays include Tape, Match, Dusk Rings a Bell and Fault Lines.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
