News   Williams' Clothes for a Summer Hotel to Make Limited NYC Return
The White Horse Theatre Company will present a revival of Tennessee Williams' 1980 drama Clothes for a Summer Hotel, beginning Feb. 5 at the Hudson Guild Theatre.

White Horse producing artistic director Cyndy A. Marion will stage Williams' final Broadway play that conjures "Great Gatsby" author F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda. Clothes for a Summer Hotel will play a limited engagement through Feb. 21.

The cast will feature Tom Cleary, Peter J. Crosby, Mary Goggin, Chris Johnson, Julie Kelderman, Sarah Levine, Ambien Mitchell, Kyle Lamar Mitchell, Lisa Riegel, Montgomery Sutton, Rod Sweitzer and Kristen Vaughan.

According to press notes, Clothes for a Summer Hotel "imagines an ethereal final meeting between the restless ghosts of literary great F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda. Set on a windy hilltop at the gates of the Asheville, NC asylum where Zelda was institutionalized before her death by fire in 1948, a desperate Scott pleads for reconciliation while Zelda blames him for her failed writing career and ensuing madness. Taking extraordinary liberties with time and place, Clothes fuses the past, present and future as Zelda and Scott re-visit the Jazz Age of their youth on the French Riviera and the ghosts of characters, including Ernest Hemingway, who helped shape their existence."

Clothes for a Summer Hotel will have designs by John C. Scheffler (set design), Randall Parsons (additional set design/execution), Debra Leigh Siegel (lighting design), Adam Coffia (costume design), David Schulder (sound design), Joe Gianono (incidental music), Mike Chin (fight choreography), Liz Vacco (choreography), and Vittoria Natale and Guillermo Elkouss (tango choreography).

For tickets, priced $18, phone (212) 868-4444 or visit Smarttix. The Hudson Guild Theatre is located at 441 West 26th Street in Manhattan.
