The Goodman Theatre has announced casting for director Calixto Bieto's re-imagining of Tennessee Wiliams' Camino Real, to run March 3 - April 8, with an opening on March 12.

One of the more overtly poetic plays in Williams' oeuvre, the show places familiar characters from Literature -- such as Don Quixote, Casanova and Lord Byron -- in a mythical town in an unspecificed Latin American country where the "spring of humanity has gone dry." These literary characters are joined by characters who are products of Williams' imagination.

The ensemble cast will include David Darlow as Jacques Casanova; Matt DeCaro as Gutman; André De Shields as Baron De Charlus; Marilyn Dodds Frank as Marguerite Gautier; Carolyn Ann Hoerdemann as The Gypsy; Antwayn Hopper as Kilroy; Travis A. Knight as The Survivor/ Abdullah; Monica Lopez as Esmeralda; Michael Medeiros as The Dreamer; Mark L. Montgomery as Lord Byron; Jonno Roberts as Lobo; Barbara E. Robertson as Rosita; and Jacqueline Williams as La Madrecita De Los Perdidos.

The creative team will include co-adapter Marc Rosich, set designer Rebecca Ringst, costume designer Ana Kuzmanic, lighting designer James F. Ingalls, sound designer Richard Woodbury and music director Andra Velis Simon.
