StageWest, of Springfield, MA, is currently running it's production of Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer Prize-winning, Anna Christie, through May 4. The play is about a former prostitute who comes to live with her barge captain father. When she falls in love with a young, husky Irish sailor, her father and her lover are confronted by each other and by her past.
Anna Christie is directed by Hartford Stage Producing Director Greg Leaming. Anna's father is played by on and off-Broadway actor Jesse Doran, and Leslie Hendrix, who understudied both Kathleen Turner and Jessica Lange on Broadway, plays Anna. Anna's suitor, Mat Burke, is played by Christopher McHale, seen on Broadway in Emily Mann's Execution of Justice.
