TACT Announces Three Wise Guys Will Be Its Final Production
The company's 25th-anniversary season will be its last.
TACT (The Actors Company Theatre), which is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary, announced that its upcoming world premiere production of Three Wise Guys — a new comedy by Scott Alan Evans and Jeffrey Couchman based on Damon Runyon's short stories "Dancing Dan's Christmas" and "The Three Wise Guys" — will be its final production, and that this season would be its last.
"We have had a great run, and we are proud to have actually fulfilled what we set out to do: to create an artistic home for a company of theatre artists that reveals, reclaims, and re-imagines great plays of literary merit, creating an intimate theatre experience for its audience by focusing on the text and the actor's ability to bring it to life," said Evans, the company's artistic executive director, in a statement. "After much consideration we have come to realize that we should stop now, as we celebrate 25 years of great theater. And Three Wise Guys is the perfect finale, as it was created especially for TACT and its company members, much in the same way we did 15 years ago when we created The Triangle Factory Fire Project, another original work based on historic literary sources and made by and for TACT."
Three Wise Guys will run February 28-April 14 at the Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row, with opening night set for March 11. Evans will direct a cast that features Jeffrey C. Hawkins, Joel Jones, Karl Kenzler, Victoria Mack, Ron McClary, John Plumpis, and Dana Smith-Croll.
