World Premiere of Tracy Letts' Linda Vista in Rehearsal at Steppenwolf Theatre
Dexter Bullard directs the production.
Steppenwolf Theatre is in rehearsal for its world premiere production of Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning playwright Tracy Letts' Linda Vista. Dexter Bullard directs the production scheduled to begin performances March 30. Opening night is set for April 9.
The play is described as follows, "Wheeler is 50. His marriage is over, his job is mundane, and the best years of his life appear to be behind him. A move from the cot in his ex-wife's garage to his own apartment opens up new possibilities for love and sex — complicated, painful and hilarious. Full of opinions, yet short on self-examination, Wheeler must reconcile the man he has become with the man he wants to be."
Featured in the cast is Ian Barford (Wheeler), Tim Hopper (Paul), Sally Murphy (Margaret), and Caroline Neff (Anita), with Kahyun Kim (Minnie), Cora Vander Broek (Jules), and Troy West (Michael).
The creative team includes Todd Rosenthal (scenic design), Laura Bauer (costume design), Marcus Doshi (lighting design), Richard Woodbury (sound design) and Gigi Buffington (vocal coach). Christine D. Freeburg is the stage manager, Ellie Hausken is the assistant stage manager, and Edward Sobel serves as dramaturg.
