James Marsters, Kate Steele, John Vickery and More Set for LATW's SALOME, Now thru 2/2
Salomé - James Marsters, Kate Steele and John Vickery head the cast when L.A. Theatre Works presents Oscar Wilde's masterpiece, the story of the exotic and seductive young woman whose obsession with revenge leads this Biblical tale to its inevitable end - the beheading of Jokanaan (John the Baptist), and Salomé's infamous dance of the seven veils.
The last of Wilde's plays to be produced in his lifetime, Salomé was fraught with scandal and considered so provocative that it was frequently banned.
All performances will be recorded live in front of an audience (without sets or costumes) to air on L.A. Theatre Works' syndicated radio theater series, which broadcasts weekly on public radio stations nationwide (locally, in Southern California, on KPFK 90.7 FM) and can be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.
Written by Oscar Wilde, the production is directed by Michael Hackett and will feature Rosalind Ayres, James Marsters, André Sogliuzzo, Kate Steele, John Vickery and Matthew Wolf. It is produced by Susan A. Loewenberg.
