Photo Coverage: THE MILK TRAIN DOESN'T STOP HERE ANYMORE Cast Meets the Press

The cast of the Roundabout's The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore, by Tennessee Williams and directed by Michael Wilson met the press yesterday, December 21. The cast includes Curtis Billings (Giulio), Elisa Bocanegra (Simonetta), Olympia Dukakis (Flora Goforth), Edward Hibbert (Witch of Capri), Maggie Lacey (Frances Black), Darren Pettie (Christopher Flanders). BroadwayWorld was on hand and brings you photo coverage below.

The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore will play during the year of Williams' centennial celebration with previews beginning on Friday, January 7th and the official opening on Sunday, January 30th, 2011 at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street). This is a limited engagement through Sunday, April 3rd, 2011.

The design team includes Jeff Cowie (Sets), David C. Woolard (Costumes), Rui Rita (Lights) & John Gromada (Original Music & Sound).

In this haunting Tennessee Williams drama, Olympia Dukakis stars as Flora Goforth, a wealthy American widow. In her picturesque Italian mountaintop home, Flora has detached from the world in order to write her memoirs. When a handsome and mysterious young visitor arrives without warning to keep Flora company in her final hours, this dreamlike play blossoms into a fascinating meditation on life and death.

This production of Williams' play premiered May 2008 at Hartford Stage directed by Artistic Director Michael Wilson and was the culmination of Wilson's ten-year project on the work of Tennessee Williams.

Roundabout Theatre Company has a long association with Tennessee Williams, having staged most recently The Glass Menagerie (2009-2010), Suddenly Last Summer (2006-2007), A Streetcar Named Desire (2004-2005), The Night of the Iguana (1995-1996), Summer and Smoke (1995-1996 and 1975-1976) and The Glass Menagerie (1994-1995).
