Directed by David Ira Goldstein, artistic director of Arizona Theatre Company, where Ten Chimneys had its recent world premiere, the cast will feature Dana Ivey (The Importance of Being Earnest), Boyd Gaines (Driving Miss Daisy) and Lisa Banes (Go Back to Where You Are).

"The Lunts, two of the most revered Broadway stars, decide to perform Chekhov’s The Seagull but first retreat to ‘investigate’ the play at Ten Chimneys, their beloved Wisconsin estate where they are surrounded by actors, family and hangers-on," according to press notes. "When a young Uta Hagen arrives, events begin to mirror Chekhov’s masterpiece of passion and art."

Reception with the cast, director and writer will follow the performance.

Playwrights Horizons is located at 416 West 42nd Street. Tickets are $60 and $35 and are available at (212) 258-3111.


Founded in 1972 by John Houseman, current producing artistic director Margot Harley, Kevin Kline and Patti LuPone, The Acting Company has been honored with a Tony Award for sustained excellence.
