Photo Flash: First Look at Kathleen Turner and More in THE KILLING OF SISTER GEORGE

‚Äč
Long Wharf Theatre, under the leadership of Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein and Managing Director Joshua Borenstein, present The Killing of Sister George, by Frank Marcus and adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher, directed by and starring Kathleen Turner.  BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.

The show is playing at the newly renovated Claire Tow Stage in the C. Newton Schenck III Mainstage Theatre, running from tonight, November 28 through December 23, 2012. Tickets are $40-$70 and can be purchased by visiting www.longwharf.org or calling 203-787-4282. 

By day June Buckridge (Turner) plays Sister George tending to the sick and poor on the radio hit “Applehurst.” By night, she chews on cigars, swills gin and lets nothing and no one stand in her way, including her long suffering “secretary” Childie. When “Applehurst”’s ratings plummet, Sister George is shuffled meekly off to the Great Beyond. June refuses to go quietly from her starring perch, however, in this bawdy and witty comedy.

Clea Alsip will play the role of Childie, Betsy Aidem will play Mercy Croft, and Olga Merediz will play Madame Xenia. In addition to playing June Buckridge, Turner will direct. Alsip, Aidem and Merediz are making their Long Wharf Theatre debuts.

The creative team is comprised of Allen Moyer (sets), Jane Greenwood (costumes), John Lasiter (lights), John Gromada (sound design/composer), Paul Huntley (wigs), Deborah Hecht (dialect coach), and Pat McCorkle, McCorkle Casting, Ltd. (casting.) Bryce McDonald is the stage manager.
