Lillias White and Scott Wakefield Begin Rehearsals for York Theatre's Texas in Paris
Alan Govenar's play with music is directed by Akin Babatundé.
Directed by Akin Babatundé, the two-character work is based on true events and tells the story of a white man and a black woman, neither of whom has any singing experience, who are invited to perform at the Maison des Cultures du Monde in France. Apprehensive of each other, they struggle with preconceptions but forge a surprising spiritual bond that transforms their onstage performance and their lives. Govenar's piece includes spirituals, cowboy songs, and country hymns.
White won a Tony for her performance in The Life, and has also been seen in Barnum, Once on This Island, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Wakefield's Broadway credits include Hands on a Hardbody, Ring of Fire, and It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues.
