Tony Award nominee Robert Cuccioli (Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark) and Angelina Fiordellisi are set to star in a new version of Joe Pintauro's classic drama Snow Orchid at off-Broadway's Lion Theatre. Presented by the Miranda Theatre Company and directed by Valentina Fratti, the play will run for a limited four-week engagement from February 3-28 with an official opening on February 8.

In Snow Orchid, Rocco Lazarra (Cuccioli) is returning home to Brooklyn a year after having suffered a nervous breakdown. Meanwhile, his wife (Fiordellisi) hasn't left their house since before his departure. Complete casting will be announced soon.

The production features scenic design by Patrick Rizzotti, costume design by Brooke Cohen, lighting design by Travis McHale, sound design and original music by Quentin Chiappetta, and hair and wig design by Rob Green and J. Jared Janas.

Joe Pintauro's first incarnation of Snow Orchid was produced in New York City by the Circle Repertory Theatre in the 1980s, starring Peter Boyle, Olympia Dukakis, and Robert LuPone. Pintauro is a recipient of the Guild Hall Lifetime Achievement Award for Literary Arts and the John Steinbeck Literary Award.
