Photo Flash: First Look at Billy Campbell and More in THE WINTER'S TALE at The Old Globe

Performances begin this Saturday, February 8 as The Old Globe presents Shakespeare's spellbinding romance The Winter's Tale. Artistic Director Barry Edelstein makes his Old Globe directorial debut with the show, the first indoor Shakespeare production at the Globe in over a decade. The Winter's Tale will run Feb. 8 - March 16, 2014 on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the Old Globe Theatre, part of the Globe's Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Preview performances run Feb. 8 - Feb. 12. Opening night is Thursday, Feb. 13 at 8:00 p.m. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

NPR calls Old Globe Artistic Director Barry Edelstein "one of the country's leading Shakespeareans." Now Edelstein's work takes center stage with The Winter's Tale, Shakespeare's most enchanting masterpiece, featuring a powerful musical score written expressly for the production by acclaimed classical composer Michael Torke. The Winter's Tale sweeps breathtakingly from tragedy to comedy and along the way visits kings and queens, dancing shepherds, a most extraordinary statue, and one notoriously hungry bear before it reaches its stunning, magical conclusion.

Acclaimed stage and screen actor Billy Campbell returns to the Globe following performances in the celebrated productions of Much Ado About Nothing (2003) and The Comedy of Errors (1997). Campbell currently stars as Dr. Alan Farragut on the new SyFy Channel drama "Helix." He is perhaps best known for his lead role on the series "Once and Again," for which he received a Golden Globe Award nomination, and the cult favorite film The Rocketeer. His other theatre credits include Fortinbras (Ovation Award) and Roundabout Theatre Company's Hamlet, and his television and film credits include "The Killing," "The 4400," "Crime Story," "Dynasty," Gettysburg, Enough, and Dracula.

The cast of The Winter's Tale also features Erin Elizabeth Adams (Dorcas), Jordi Bertran (Mamillius), Meaghan Boeing (Emilia), Lindsay Brill (Mopsa), Angel Desai (Paulina), Jamal Douglas (Mariner), Kushtrim Hoxha(Cleomenes), Paul Kandel (Autolycus, Archidamus), Maya Kazan (Perdita), A.Z. Kelsey (Florizel), Mark Nelson(Antigonus, Old Shepherd), Natacha Roi (Hermione), Robbie Simpson (Dion), Brendan Spieth (Clown), Paul MichaelValley (Polixenes), Cornell Womack (Camillo), Patrick Zeller (Jailer), and Nadia Guevara and Albert Park (Ensemble).

The creative team includes Wilson Chin (Scenic Design), Judith Dolan (Costume Design), Russell H. Champa(Lighting Design), Fitz Patton (Sound Design), Michael Torke (Original Music), Taylor Peckham (Music Director), Bryan Byrnes (Fight Director), Jan Gist (Voice and Dialect Coach), Caparelliotis Casting (Casting), and Anjee Nero (Stage Manager).
