Ivey, O'Connell, Stear, et al. Set for Cherry Lane's Fugue
The play, which won the American Theatre Critics Award for Best Play in a Regional Theatre, concerns Mary (O'Connell), a woman found wandering in Chicago in a "fugue" state of amnesia. Her case is assigned to Danny (Stear), a young psychiatrist who is running away from his own demons -- specifically, a mistake he made with a previous patient.
The show's creative team includes Neil Patel (sets), Gail Cooper Hecht (costumes), Pat Dignan (lighting), and T. Richard Fitzgerald and Carl Casella (lighting). Ivey won Tony Awards for her performances in Steaming and Hurlyburly. Her directorial credits include Bad Dates, Steel Magnolias, Soccer Moms, and Southern Comforts.
