Dana Ivey
Dana Ivey
Dana Ivey will star in Samuel Beckett's Happy Days, to play Westport Country Playhouse, July 6-24. Mark Lamos will direct.

The play tells the story of a woman's cheerful optimism in the face of a trifling universe, as the central character of Winnie (Ivey) is buried waist deep, then neck deep in a mound of dirt.

Ivey is a five-time Tony Award nominee for Butley, The Rivals, The Last Night of Ballyhoo, Sunday in the Park with George, and Heartbreak House. Her numerous other theater credits include Sex and Longing, Present Laughter, and last season's Off-Broadway production of The Savannah Disputation.
