Full 22 Person Cast Announced for ReGroup's A TEXAS TRILOGY, 8/7-24
by BWW News Desk - Jul 24, 2014

Commonly known as A Texas Trilogy, the three plays centered on small-town life set the theatre world afire in 1974.

A bidding war then broke out to bring the plays to New York, and, directed by Alan Schneider, they finally arrived on Broadway in 1976. (more...)
