Off-Broadway Revival of Volpone Will Feature Stephen Spinella, Tovah Feldshuh and Alvin Epstein
By Adam Hetrick
Tony Award winner Stephen Spinella, Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh and Alvin Epstein have been cast in the Red Bull Theater revival of Ben Jonson's Volpone, or The Fox, which will begin previews Off-Broadway Nov. 27 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.
Jesse Berger will helm the production that is set to open Dec. 9 for a run through Dec. 23. Tracy Bersley will choreograph.
Spinella (Angels in America), Feldshuh (Golda's Balcony) and Epstein (The Cherry Orchard) will be joined by Jen Eden, Cameron Folmar (The 39 Steps), Michael Mastro (Love! Valour! Compassion!), Sean Patrick Doyle (La Cage Aux Folles), Christina Pumariega (Seminar), Pearl Rhein (The Red Letterbox), Rocco Sisto (Quills), Alexander Sovronsky (Cyrano de Bergerac), Charles Turner (Dividing the Estate) and Gregory Wooddell (The Lyons).
Volpone will have set design by John Arnone, costume design by Clint Ramos, lighting design by Peter West and original music by Scott Killian.
According to Red Bull, "Meet Volpone, the rich old Magnifico, whose ingenious schemes and farcical scams dupe his wealthy friends into showering him with gold. This Jacobean juggler robs the rich to feed the richer. Considered one of the greatest comedies ever written for the stage, Jonson's merciless satire of greed and lust delightfully skewers the vanities and hypocrisies of humanity with irreverent comic relish. A feast of extraordinary language and outrageous characters await you in this timeless and timely classic from the pen of Shakespeare's greatest peer."
Tickets are available by visiting RedBullTheater or by calling (212) 352-3101.
