John Cunningham to Replace Richard Easton in Painting Churches Off-Broadway
Cunningham's Broadway credits include Amour, Design for Living, Titanic, The Sisters Rosensweig, Six Degrees of Separation, Anna Karenina, Cabaret, 1776, Company, and Sunday in the Park with George. Among his many film credits are Two Weeks Notice, Marci X, Shaft, Nixon, In & Out, Dead Poets Society, School Ties, and Mystic Pizza.
The play, to be directed by Carl Forsman, centers on the Church family: Fanny (Chalfant) and Gardner (Easton) are packing, about to move to a beach home on Cape Cod. Gardner is a poet and Fanny is from a "fine old family."
The creative team will include Beowulf Boritt (scenic design), Josh Bradford (lighting design), Jennifer Paar (costume design), and Ryan Rumery (sound design).
