Two men’s idyllic life in Sag Harbor hits some snags in Tony nominee ‘s Harbor, which after its premiere at Westport Country Playhouse last year, will play New York’s Primary Stages this summer. Tony Award nominee Mark Lamos, who staged the show originally and is also the playhouse’s artistic director, will helm the production.

Casting has yet to be announced for this play that looks at what happens when Ted and Kevin, partners of ten years, get an unexpected visit from Kevin’s ne’er-do-well sister and her teenage daughter. The show’s original creative team will be reassembled for the production, including Andrew Jackness (scenic design), Candice Donnelly (costume design), Japhy Weideman (lighting design), and John Gromada (sound design).

Beguelin was Tony Award-nominated for his book and lyrics for The Wedding Singer, which he wrote with Matthew Sklar. Beguelin has also collaborated with Sklar on the songs for Elf and Judas & Me.

Lamos received a Tony Award nomination for his direction of Our Country’s Good. Among his other recent Broadway credits are Cymbeline, Seascape, and The Rivals. In addition, Lamos served as artistic director of Hartford Stage, has directed productions for such other regional companies as the Guthrie Theatre, American Conservatory Theatre, and The Old Globe, and has been active in the world of opera, staging pieces both in this country and internationally.
