Maura Tierney, Steven Weber to Star in Williamstown Theatre Festival's Three Hotels; Additional Festival Casting Announced
In the two character play, Ken Hoyle is an ambitious hatchet man for a multinational company that sells defective baby formula in developing African countries. His wife Barbara advises other young executive wives on life in the third world. Their days as idealistic Peace Corps volunteers are far behind them - physically and metaphorically - and the succession of moral compromises has taken its toll.
Tierney's theater credits include The Wooster Group's North Atlantic, Neil LaBute's Some Girl(s) and Nicky Silver's Three Changes. The actress may be best known for her portrayal of Nurse Abby Lockhart on ER and for her work on NewsRadio.
Weber's Broadway credits include The Producers and The Philanthropist, and he is best known for his work on TV's Brothers and Sisters, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and Wings.
