Richard Easton, Scott Wolf and Christopher Fitzgerald will star in the Lincoln Center Theater production of Frank McGuinness' Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme, a spokesperson for the show confirmed.
Also in the cast are Dashiell Eaves, Jason Butler Harner, Rod McLachlan, Jeremy Shamos and David Barry Gray. Nicholas Martin directs.
Previews begin Feb. 6, 2003, for an opening on Feb. 24 at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.
Martin helmed productions of Ulster at both the Williamstown Theatre Festival and the Huntington Theatre Company. Wolf, Theroux, Harner, Fitzgerald, Walker and McLachlan starred in the Williamstown and Beantown productions. Easton starred only in the Williamstown mounting.
Easton has virtually become Lincoln Center's in-house actor. He won a Tony for his work in The Invention of Love. He is also starring in LCT's upcoming production of Henry IV. Both Wolf and Theroux have enjoyed screen time as well as stage time. Wolf is probably best remembered as Bailey Salinger on the television drama, "Party of Five." He also has taken the stage in Side Man on Broadway and Far East and Dead End at Williamstown. Theroux was featured in David Lynch's "Mullholland Drive" and has been seen in The Three Sisters on Broadway.
Sons of Ulster centers on a group of Irish Protestant Nationalists who volunteer to fight in Europe in the bloody Battle of the Somme at the opening of World War I.
