STAGE TUBE: Watch Highlights from Joel Grey- Helmed ON BORROWED TIME
Two River Theater, under the leadership of Artistic Director John Dias and Managing Director Michael Hurst, launches its 2013-2014 Season with Paul Osborn's On Borrowed Time, directed by Tony and Academy Award-winner Joel Grey. Below, check out highlights from the production!
"On Borrowed Time is a too-rarely-seen American classic that is ripe for rediscovery," says Artistic Director John Dias. "Three years ago, when I became Two River's Artistic Director, one of the first calls I made was to Joel Grey; we first worked together 25 years ago and I knew I wanted him to work in some capacity at this theater. When he suggested On Borrowed Time-a play that has meant a lot to him in his own history-I was struck by how relevant, beautiful, and moving it is. This year, as we celebrate Two River's 20-year history of developing and producing great American theater, it feels especially right to present this masterpiece on its 75th anniversary."
Two River Theater is opening its 20th Anniversary Season with this magical fantasy about the love between a little boy nicknamed "Pud" (Oakes Fegley) and his Gramps (Robert Hogan). When Death himself pays them a visit in the form of a man named Mr. Brink (Tom Nelis), Gramps outwits him-trapping Brink in a tree and refusing to let him down. The cast also features Alex Garfin (Boy), Brian Gildea (Workman), Brian Michael Hoffman (Mr. Grimes), Betsy Hogg(Marcia Giles), Patrick Husted (Mr. Pilbeam), Diane Kagan (Granny), Angela Reed (Demetria Riffle), Steven Skybell(Dr. Evans), Lorenzo Villanueva (Workman), John Thomas Waite (Sherriff), and Snickers (Betty).
