Danny Burstein, Sarah Paulson to Take On Talley's Folly for the Roundabout
Danny Burstein and Sarah Paulson will star in the Roundabout Theatre Company's Off-Broadway revival of Lanford Wilson's Pulitzer Prize winning Talley's Folly. Michael Wilson directs the 2013 production, which performs at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre February 8-April 28, with an opening on March 5.
The play is set at the end of World War II, as Jewish immigrant Matt Friedman (Burstein) returns to the small town where he first met Sally Talley (Paulson) to ask for her hand in marriage.
The design team will include Jeff Cowie (sets), David Woolard (costumes) and Rui Rita (lights).
Burstein received a 2012 Tony nomination and Drama Desk Award for his performance in Follies, and additional Tony nominations for South Pacific and The Drowsy Chaperone. Paulson has starred on Broadway in Collected Stories and The Glass Menagerie. She received a Golden Globe nomination for Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and is a series regular on American Horror Story.
