Too early to tell, but the romantically linked couple certainly are getting in the habit of sharing the same stage. Last year, they played the title roles in Anthony and Cleopatra at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis. Now, beginning March 28, they will star in the world premiere of Steven Dietz's new play, Fiction, at the McCarter Theatre in Princeton, NJ.
The stars of Jekyll & Hyde and Tiny Alice portray a married couple. Both characters are writers. They get along perfectly well until their separate diaries are opened and examined. What's found there blurs "the boundaries between past and present, fact and fiction, trust and betrayal."
[Playbill On-Line previously reported that Cuccioli and Robins are married in real life. We regret the error.]
Also in the cast is Marianne Hagan. David Warren, who recently finished staging Barbra's Wedding Off-Broadway, is the director.
Fiction runs until April 13.
Tickets range from $31 through $47. For tickets, call (609) 258-2787.
