John Glover, Laila Robins, and More to Star in Joe DiPietro's The Second Mrs. Wilson
The work will be seen at the George Street Playhouse.
Gordon Edelstein will direct a cast that is made up of Tony winners John Glover (Death of a Salesman), Michael McGrath (She Loves Me), and Stephen Spinella (The Velocity of Autumn), alongside stage and screen favorite Laila Robins (Homeland), Sherman Howard, Richmond Hoxie, and Stephen Barker Turner.
DiPietro's new play is the story of the woman who many believed served as the first female president. In the story, "It is April 1915. President Woodrow Wilson marries Edith Galt, who very quickly becomes important – and influential – to her husband. With the first World War looming, the president falls ill, and it is left to Edith to outsmart the men of Washington who would derail her beloved husband's dream of world peace and the League of Nations."
The creative team includes Alexander Dodge (scenic design, Linda Cho (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), and John Gromada (sound design).
