Photo Flash: First Look at Cinnabar Theater's OF MICE AND MEN, Opening Tonight
After two hit shows that sold out their original dates and extended their runs, Cinnabar Theater in Sonoma County continues its spectacular theatrical season with an American masterpiece. John Steinbeck's Of Mice & Men opens at Cinnabar tonight, March 21 and plays through April 6. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize with heartfelt stories about ordinary people, and Cinnabar proudly presents his classic tale about friendship and hope. Lennie and George can't count on anything except each other. Working on a ranch, they save their dimes and dream of buying a farm... but the boss and his flirtatious wife could spoil it all. After poignant productions of The Price and La Cage aux Folles, Sheri Lee Miller returns to stage this bittersweet portrait of two underdogs in pursuit of the American dream.
Of Mice & Men stars Keith Baker and Samson Hood as the famous friends, George and Lennie. The ensemble of talented actors also features Anthony Abate? (Carlson), James Gagarin (Curley), Tim Kniffin (Slim), Dorian Lockett (Crooks), Clark Miller (Candy), Ilana Niernberger (Curley's wife), Kevin Singer (Whit), and Barton Smith (The Boss).
The design team includes Joe Elwick (scenery), Pat Fitzgerald (costumes), Wayne Hovey (lights), and Jim Peterson (sound). This production is generously underwritten by Sandra O'Brien and Elly Lichenstein.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for ages 21 and under, with special $9 seats for middle- and high-school students on March 21. Get tickets online at any time by visiting cinnabartheater.org, or call the box office at 707-763-8920 between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM on weekdays.
