Photo Flash: Frank's Home at Playwrights Horizons
Richard Nelson's new play Frank's Home, which began previews at Playwrights Horizons' Mainstage Theater on January 13th, 2007, will open on January 30th and run through February 18th.
The new play about architect Frank Lloyd Wright, which was recently a hit at the Goodman Theater, will star its Chicago cast of Peter Weller (Summer Brave, Full Circle, Robocop films, "24") and Harris Yulin (Fran's Bed, Hedda Gabler, The Price), as well as Mary Beth Fisher as Frank's mistress Miriam Noel, Maggie Siff as his daughter Catherine, Jay Whitaker as his son Lloyd, Jeremy Strong as his assistant William, Chris Henry Coffey as Catherine's husband Kenneth, and Holley Fain as Helen, a schoolteacher. Weller will play Frank Lloyd Wright, with Yulin as fellow architect and mentor Louis Sullivan.
"It is summer, 1923, and architect Frank Lloyd Wright has recently left Chicago for California, determined to embrace Hollywood's youthful zest and mend broken relationships with his adult children. Having recently completed his latest 'wonder of the world' — Tokyo's Imperial Hotel — Wright is poised to settle down and embrace his new home. But his splintered family still holds deep-seated resentments," state press materials on the play by Nelson (Franny's Way, James Joyce's The Dead), which will once again be directed by Robert Falls (Shining City, Aida).
