Starring in The Gathering are Deidre Lovejoy, Sam Guncler, Hal Linden and Max Dworin. Colman Zeiglen (not pictured) also appears in the comedic family drama, which opened April 24 at the Cort Theatre.
Set in 1985, The Gathering explores the conflicts between grandfather, father and son which arise over the dinner table when they discuss President Ronald Reagan's planned visit to Bitberg, site of burial grounds for Nazi soldiers. The stakes are high in the discussion because the grandfather (Linden) is a Holocaust survivor and his son (Guncler) is a speechwriter for Reagan. Caught between them is the young lad (Dworin), who is preparing for his bar mitvah.
