At Home at the Zoo, Starring Robert Sean Leonard, Opens at Signature Theatre
Signature Theatre's production of Edward Albee's At Home at the Zoo: Homelife & The Zoo Story, directed by Drama Desk Award winner Lila Neugebauer (Miles for Mary), opened last night, February 21, at Pershing Square Signature Center. Performances run through March 11. Check out photos from the festivities in the gallery below.
The cast includes two-time Tony winner Katie Finneran (Noises Off), Tony winner Robert Sean Leonard (The Invention of Love), and Emmy nominee Paul Sparks (House of Cards).
In Act 1, Homelife, we meet Peter and his wife, who live a comfortable but vaguely unhappy bourgeois existence; in Act 2, Albee's classic The Zoo Story, Peter is forever altered by an oddly persistent stranger in Central Park. With jolts of brutality and Albee's signature dark humor, this seminal play explores both the love and the cruelty that we inflict on each other every day.
The creative team includes Andrew Lieberman (set design), Kaye Voyce (costume design), Japhy Weideman (lighting design), Bray Poor (sound design), and UnkleDave's Fight House (fight direction).
