Esper, Greenberg, Taylor to Join Weaver and Nielsen in Crazy Mary
The play tells the story of a mother and son (Weaver and Esper) who visit their crazy relative, Mary (Neilsen), in an attempt to account for the family inheritance -- with unexpected consequences. Greenberg and Taylor will play the doctor and nurse who look after Mary at the asylum where she lives.
The show's creative team will include John Lee Beatty (sets), Claudia Brown (costumes), Brian Aldous (lighting), Jill BC DuBoff (sound), and Michael Holland (original design). Simpson, the artistic director of the Flea Theater, has directed Gurney's plays Mrs. Farnsworth, O Jerusalem, Screen Play, and Post Mortem.
Esper has previously appeared Off-Broadway in Manic Flight Reaction and subUrbia. Greenberg's Broadway credits include 3 Penny Opera, Marilyn, and Laughter on the 23rd Floor. Taylor has appeared on Broadway in Nine and Electra and co-starred in Fabulation at Playwrights Horizons.
