John Lithgow, Jason Lott, Christopher Venditti, et al. Set for The Trumpet of the Swan in DC
The show, which has been adapted by Marsha Norman from the children's novel by E.B. White, enters on the friendship between Louis, a young Trumpeter swan who is born without a voice, and his human friend Sam, who teaches the bird how to play an actual trumpet.
The company will feature John Lithgow (Sam), Naomi Jacobson (Mother Swan), Jason Lott (Louis' Thoughts), Jenna Sokolowski (Serena), Craig Wallace (Father Swan), and Michael Willis (Man). The role of Louis will be performed by trumpeter Christopher Venditti.
