Alvin Epstein
Alvin Epstein and Matthew Floyd Miller will star as Sigmund Freud and Salvador Dalí, respectively, in the Wilma Theater's production of Terry Johnson's Hysteria, to run May 13-June 14, with an opening on May 20. Jiri Zizka will direct.

Winner of London's Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, the play is set in London in 1938, and springs from Freud's fanciful mind as he juggles unexpected visits to his home by the famous surrealist painter Dalí and a mysterious young woman named Jessica who can't seem to keep her clothes on.

The cast will also feature Merwin Goldsmith as Abraham Yahuda and Mary McCool as Jessica, with the ensemble including Robert Ian Cutler, Will Harrell, Matteo LeCompte, Miranda Libkin, Kristen O'Rourke, Christine Perrotta, Ted Powell, Molly Simpson, and Megan Slater.

The design team will include Mimi Lien (set), Jerold R. Forsyth (lighting), Janus Stefanowicz (costumes), and Nick Rye (sound).

Epstein's many Broadway credits include King Lear, Waiting for Godot, and 3 Penny Opera. He is a former Artistic Director of the Guthrie Theater and Associate Director of Yale Repertory Theatre, which he co-founded. Miller's Broadway credits include Not About Nightingales and Invention of Love.
