by BWW News Desk - Nov 7, 2010

Director Robert Falls and actors Mary Beth Fisher and Francis Guinan talk about the process of bringing Anton Chekhov's The Seagull to Goodman Theatre at a special discussion on Sunday, November 7 at 6:30pm, following the matinee performance. Moderated by Steppenwolf Theatre Company Artistic Director Martha Lavey, this conversation is part of the theater's Artists Talk series, a unique opportunity for audiences to connect directly with the artists from Goodman productions. Tickets to the Artists Talk are $10 ($5 for Goodman subscribers); 312.443.3800. The Seagull runs through November 14 in the Goodman's Owen Theatre. The culmination of two years of research and preparation, this production of The Seagull marks a departure from Falls' recent large-scale work-and a focus on the method of Konstantin Stanislavsky, the man often credited as 'the father of modern theater.' As previously announced, the ensemble cast of 14 includes Will Allan, Janet Ulrich Brooks, Rebecca Buller, Cliff Chamberlain, Laura T. Fisher, Mary Beth Fisher, Dieterich Gray, Stephen Louis Grush, Francis Guinan, Scott Jaeck, Kelly O'Sullivan, Steve Pickering, Demetrios Troy and Heather Wood.

Arizona Theatre Company Presents ROMEO AND JULIET, 11/4-14Arizona Theatre Company Presents ROMEO AND JULIET, 11/4-14
by BWW News Desk - Nov 4, 2010

ATC proudly presents a limited engagement of ROMEO AND JULIET, the 'greatest love story ever told,' performed by two of America's premier classical theatre companies for a limited run, November 4-7 at the Herberger Theater Center in Phoenix and November 11-14 at the Temple of Music and Art in Tucson. The New York Times says, 'ROMEO AND JULIET is a play of enormous, reckless passions - clans feud, friends quarrel, and lovers swoon. Here, those passions are met head-on, and with real skill.' The Minneapolis Examiner claims, 'This ROMEO AND JULIET transcends its classic status by portraying its fated lovers as two swept up in a romance that leads from the heart and not from the head. Whatever your age, it's safe to say this production will make you feel equally smitten.' This is a strictly limited engagement of this acclaimed national tour of William Shakespeare's richly poetic tragedy of young love. (more...)
