Robert Emmet Lunney will play Garson Kanin and Sam Tsoutsouvas will be Somerset Maugham in Remembering Mr. Maugham, to be presented at the Clurman Theatre, March 4-13. Tony Speciale will direct.

Adapted by Kanin from his memoir of the same name, the play is a treasure trove of private conversations, amusing anecdotes and candid recollections of his beloved friend and confidant W Somerset Maugham. The production will have scenic and costume design by Daniel Zimmerman and lighting by Natalie Robin.

This staging of Remembering Mr. Maugham is part of a yearlong celebration of the late playwright and director, Garson Kanin. The play was originally performed by Kanin (as himself) with Dennis King as Somerset Maugham in various venues including The Players in New York (1967), the Library of Congress (1969) and Los Angeles' Mark Taper Forum.
