Photo Flash: First Look at ReGroup Theatre's SUCCESS STORY

‚Äč
ReGroup opened SUCCESS STORY by John Howard Lawson, the 4th play ever performed by The Group Theatre at The Robert Moss Theatre, 440 Lafayette St on Wed March 6th. It will now play through the 24th of the month, and runs in rep with Lawson's farce LOUD SPEAKER. This is the first time these plays have been seen in generations. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast of SUCCESS STORY in action below!

Originally presented in 1932, Lawson's "lost" play Success Story was the 3rd play produced by The Group Theatre under the direction of Lee Strasberg and featuring the A-List cast of Luther & Stella Adler, Franchot Tone, Morris Carnovsky, etc. ReGroup Theatre Company Founder & Artistic DirectorAllie Mulholland, who has been planning these productions for a few years now, brings the show back to the New York stage with acclaimed actors Leah Wagner, James Aronson, Brandon Ruckdashel, Pooya Mohseni, Luke Guldan, Robert Benes, Robert McKeon, Tami McCarthy and Carly J. Bauer, with Mulholland himself playing the lead role of "Sol" and Brian Stites directing, with Laura Sisskin-Fernandez assisting.

Success Story is the tale of Sol Ginsberg, a young Jewish upstart at a Madison Ave advertising firm in 1928. A former idealist radical, he now sees that the only way to achieve the American Dream is through money. As opportunities present themselves, he begins compromising his spirit in order to get ahead, even risking losing his childhood sweetheart and his own identity.

Joseph Croghan is doing the set designer for Success Story, with Daniel Winters handling the lighting design for both shows. The ReGroup Theatre Company was created in 2010 with the mission to produce "great plays" as defined by the original Group Theatre as plays which are "propaganda for a better life."
