News   Sunset Limited to Pull Into New York City Oct. 24
Steppenwolf Theatre Company's staging of The Sunset Limited, a new play by Cormac McCarthy, the novelist, will follow the route of another train, the Twentieth Century Ltd., and travel from Chicago to New York City.

The New York Times reported that the play will run at 59E59 Theaters Oct. 24-Nov. 19.

The Sunset Limited, a two-hander, is "the tale of a man who saves another man's life on a New York City subway platform." The production began its run at Steppenwolf May 18 in the Garage Theatre and remained there until June 25. Sheldon Patinkin directed, and Austin Pendleton co-stared with Freeman Coffey.

The New York mounting will again star Austin Pendleton and Freeman Coffey.

Pendleton is currently in rehearsal for the Central Park mounting of Mother Courage starring Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline. His many acting credits include the original Fiddler on the Roof, The Last Sweet Days of Isaac and the recent Broadway revival of The Diary of Anne Frank. He has had a parallel directed career since the early '70s. Among the shows he has staged are the Off-Broadway hit Good Night, Gracie, the Broadway productions of The Runner Stumbles and The Spoils of War and the Elizabeth Taylor revival of Little Foxes.

McCarthy is the author of "All the Pretty Horses" and "No Country for Old Men," among other books.
