Kathryn Erbe, Anthony Lapaglia Set for Checkers at the Vineyard
Tony Award winner Anthony Lapaglia and Tony nominee Kathryn Erbe will star as Richard and Pat Nixon, respectively, in Checkers at the Vineyard Theatre. Terry Kinney will direct this play by Douglas McGrath, to run October 12- November 18, with an opening on October 28.
The play is set in 1952, and centers on the now-legendary speech made by then-Senator Nixon, during his campaign as his party's candidate for Vice-President.
The creative team includes Neil Patel (scenic design), Sarah Holden (costume design), David Weiner (lighting design), Millburn/Bodeen (music and sound design), and Darrel Maloney (projection design).
