The two productions will run in repertory beginning May 9 and officially opening May 16 on Theatre Row. Performances will continue through June 5. Casting will be announced shortly.
Eric Parness will stage The Master Builder, and Evan Bergman will direct The Glass House. Designing the productions are Jo Winiarski (scenic design), Sidney Shannon (costume design), Pamela Kupper (lighting design) and Nick Moore (original music and sound design).
The Master Builder, according to press notes, "tells the story of a revered but aging architect who is haunted by painful memories and fears of the future. When a figure from his past suddenly reappears, his outlook, and his destiny, will be forever changed."
According to press notes, "The design and building of Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House and Philip Johnson’s Glass House is the background for The Glass House's penetrating dramatic plot that entwines the epic conflict between artist and patron. The play explores the classic struggle of ambition, passion and betrayal."
