QUARTET Opens Tonight at The Old Globe

The Old Globe presents the third production of the 2014 Summer Season, Ronald Harwood's comedy QUARTET, directed by Richard Seer (Other Desert Cities, God of Carnage, The Last Romance). Harwood received an Academy Award for his screenplay of The Pianist and was nominated for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and The Dresser (also a hit on Broadway and the West End). QUARTET will play in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Globe's Conrad Prebys Theatre Center, now through August 24, 2014. The show opens tonight, July 31.

The acting company includes Roger Forbes (Wilfred Bond; the National Theatre under Sir Laurence Olivier, London's Garrick and Cambridge Theatres, founding member of Geva Theatrein New York), Globe Associate Artist Robert Foxworth (Reginald Paget; Globe and Broadway's August: Osage County, Broadway's Twelve Angry Men, Ivanov, Honour, Judgment at Nuremberg, and Henry V), Elizabeth Franz (Jean Horton; Broadway's Morning's at Seven, Tony Award for Death of a Salesman, Brighton Beach Memoirs, and Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All for You), and Jill Tanner (Cecily Robson; Broadway's Dividing the Estate, Enchanted April, Rose, My Fat Friend, and No Sex Please, We're British).

The creative team includes Globe Associate Artist Ralph Funicello (Scenic Design), Charlotte Devaux (Costume Design), York Kennedy (Lighting Design), Christopher R. Walker (Sound Design), Nicolas Reveles (Opera Consultant), and Annette Yé (Stage Manager).

From the author of The Dresser comes an uplifting comedy recently made into a major motion picture. Three former opera singers, Reginald, Cecily, and Wilfred, lead a harmonious existence at a home for retired musicians-until Reginald's ex-wife, grande dame Jean Horton, arrives. As long-ago grudges surface and old scores are settled, the quartet heads back into the rehearsal room for one final encore. Globe favorite Richard Seer directs.

Quartet will run now through August 24, 2014, with Opening Night tonight, July 31 at 8:00 p.m., in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Globe's Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Subscription tickets to the Globe's 2014 Summer Season range from $92 to $332. Single tickets start at $29. Tickets can be purchased online at www.TheOldGlobe.org, by phone at (619) 23-GLOBE or by visiting the Box Office at 1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park.
