'World Turns' Star Howarth Set for Stories Left to Tell
Soap star Roger Howarth (currently on "As the World Turns") will join Off-Broadway's acclaimed Spalding Gray: Stories Left To Tell, at the Minetta Lane Theatre (18 Minetta Lane, Greenwich Village). Howarth joins the cast on Tuesday, June 26 (through July 1) and will play the role of "Journals," taking over for fellow soap star Darnell Williams.
Howarth won a 1994 Daytime Emmy Award for his role as Todd Manning in "One Life To Live," a role he played on-and-off for ten years. He currently plays Paul Ryan on CBS's "As the World Turns." Other television credits include "Dawson's Creek" and "Prey." Howarth made his Broadway debut in 1999 as Philip, The King of France, in Roundabout's revival of The Lion in Winter.
"Spalding Gray: Stories Left To Tell" features an ensemble cast of five including Kathleen Chalfant, Hazelle Goodman, Tony-winner Frank Wood and a rotating special guest actor. TV and film star Michelle Trachtenberg is the current guest actor (through Sunday). She is followed by theater legend Elaine Stritch, who will join the cast on June 26 for one-night-only.
"Spalding Gray is one of the most revered and irreverent storytellers of our time. He became an indelible image: sitting alone at a desk on a bare stage, delivering hilarious and moving monologues that had a singular resonance with his audiences. Conceived by Kathleen Russo, Grayıs widow and directed by Lucy Sexton, Spalding Gray: Stories Left To Tell assembles both well-known and never-before-seen work spanning Grayıs extraordinary life and career," state press materials.
