Moore and Cullum to Star in New Simon Play at MTC
The play, which will be directed by MTC artistic director Lynne Meadow (The Tale of the Allergist's Wife), tells the story of a celebrated writer (Moore) who finds the perfect inspiration for her next work in her ex-lover (Cullum). Also featured in the cast will be David Aaron Baker and Paula Cale; additional members of the creative team will be announced shortly.
Simon's many Broadway successes include Barefoot in the Park, The Odd Couple, Sweet Charity, Plaza Suite, Brighton Beach Memoirs, Biloxi Blues, and Broadway Bound. Moore is best known for her extensive television work on such series as The Dick Van Dyke Show and Mary Tyler Moore but has also appeared on Broadway in Whose Life Is It Anyway? and Sweet Sue. Cullum, most recently seen as the villainous Caldwell B. Cladwell in Urinetown, has numerous Broadway credits including the original productions of Camelot, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, Shenandoah, On The Twentieth Century, and Deathtrap.
