STAGE TUBE: Sneak Peek at Long Wharf's RIDE THE TIGER Starring Douglas Sills, Paul Anthony Stewart & More

March 27
3:15 PM 2013

Political intrigue is the order of business in Long Wharf Theatre's production of Ride the Tiger, by William Mastrosimone, directed by Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein. The play will take place from tonight, March 27, 2013 through April 21, 2013 on The Claire Tow Stage in the C. Newton Schenck III Mainstage. Tickets are $40-$70. The press opening is Wednesday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m. Check out the promo video below!

The cast includes John Cunningham (Joe), Jordan Lage (Sam), Christina Bennett Lind (Judy), Douglas Sills (Jack), and Paul Anthony Stewart (Frank). The creative team is comprised of Eugene Lee (sets), Jess Goldstein (costumes), Tyler Micoleau (lights), Ryan Rumery (sound), and Sven Ortel (projections.) Lisa Ann Chernoff is the stage manager.

What happens when Jack, a charismatic young senator from Massachusetts, a Chicago mob boss, and Frank, a crooning movie star, all get involved with the same woman? A presidency. During the 1960 presidential campaign Jack becomes smitten with Judy, a ravishing young woman with connections. As Judy goes back and forth between these powerful men, political intrigue mounts as forces move behind the scenes to claim the highest office in the land. A fascinating drama about power and honor, Ride the Tiger is the newest from William Mastrosimone, best known for the Off-Broadway hit and subsequent major film Extremities. "Bill Mastrosimone has written a political thriller based on real life events," Edelstein said. "There are consequences for the decisions one makes of questionable moral nature."
