Bedlam’s Sense & Sensibility, a new adaptation of the Jane Austen story penned by Kate Hamill and directed by Eric Tucker, has found its cast for the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) production at Harvard University that is set to begin performances in Cambridge December 10.
Bedlam’s Sense & Sensibility first played the Sheen Center Off-Broadway in 2014. The show returned Off-Broadway in 2016 and played an extended, critically acclaimed engagement at Gym at Judson.
Returning from last year's hit Off-Broadway run will be Jessica Frey as Marianne, Violeta Picayo as Margaret, and Benjamin Russell as John Willoughby/John Dashwood. Returning from the award-winning Folger Theater run in D.C. will be Lisa Birnbaum as Mrs. Dashwood/Anne Steel, Maggie Adams McDowell as Elinor, James Patrick Nelson as Colonel Brandon, and Jamie Smithson as Edward/Robert Ferrars. Nigel Gore, from the Sheen Center run, will once again play Mrs. Jennings.
New to the show will be Ryan Quinn (Bedlam’s Dead Dog Park, 59E59) as John Middleton and Katie Hartke (Imogen in Cymbeline, Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival) as Fanny/Lucy Steel.
Sense & Sensibility is set to play through January 14, 2018, at the Loeb Drama Center, 64 Brattle Street in Cambridge.
Sense & Sensibility at A.R.T. features choreography by Alexandra Beller, scenic design by John McDermott, lighting design by Les Dickert (Bedlam’s Peter Pan), costume design by Angela Huff (Little Women), and sound design by Alex Neumann (Going to See the Kid, Merrimack Repertory Theatre).
