Al Pacino and Judith Light to Star in New Tennessee Williams Bio-Play
The work will debut at the Pasadena Playhouse.
Two-time Tony winners Al Pacino (Scarface) and Judith Light (Transparent) will share the stage in the Pasadena Playhouse's upcoming developmental production of God Looked Away, a new play by Dotson Radar. Running February 8-March 19, the work will be directed by Robert Allan Ackerman.
In the work, Pacino will play Tennessee Williams, the dramatist behind works such as A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. A look at a turbulent period in Williams' career, the work will feature Light as Estelle, one of the playwrights' dear friends.
The company will also include Miles Gaston Villanueva (The Young and the Restless), Garrett Clayton (Hairspray Live!), Andrew Dits, Matt Gottleib, Takuma Anzai, Alexa Hamilton, Kevin Bailey, and Eddy Rioseco.
Featured on the creative team are Tim Goodchild (set design), Dona Granata (costume design), Lap Chi Chu (lighting design), and Joseph "Sloe" Slawinski (sound design).
God Looked Away, adapted from a Williams' biography written by Radar, is presented as part of the Pasadena Playhouse's PlayWorks development program.
