Ruck, Robards, Rimmer, Boccitto & Cast Hold ALBUM Talk-back At Group Theatre Too
The Group Theatre Too's recent production of David Rimmer's "Album" culminated with a star-studded opening and a "talk back" after the performance. Alan Ruck, who performed "Album" in Chicago, and Sam Robards who replaced the original Cherry Lane cast in 1981, joined David Rimmer, director Justin Boccitto and the cast of the 2009 revival at the Hudson Guild Theater as they answered questions and spoke about the history of "Album" over the last twenty five years.
"Album", a Pulitzer Prize finalist, was developed in a series of workshop productions at some of New York's most prominent theaters, including Playwrights Horizons, the WPA Theater, HB Studios and ran Off-Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theater. Divided into eight scenes, the play chronicles the coming of age of two teenaged couples during the turbulent sixties, set against the music of the times.
The Group Theatre Too's cast included Ryan Gregorio, Dylan Paige, Eddy Francisco and Lexie Speirs with lighting design by Paul Gregorio, direction by Justin Boccitto with assistant director CrisTina Marie. Mr. Rimmer worked closely with The Group Theatre Too in mounting the production. Other notable attendees during the run included Jan Leslie Harding, Bruce MacVittie, Joe Franklin and Mary Lynn Henry.
