Rubicon Theatre Company to Open 16th Season with Cormac McCarthy's THE SUNSET LIMITED, Begin. 10/26
THE SUNSET LIMITED by Pulitzer Prize-winner Cormac McCarthy opens Rubicon Theatre Company's 16th Season on Saturday, October 26 at 7:00 p.m., just on the heels of the October 25 release of McCarthy's highly anticipated blockbuster film "The Counselor," directed by Ridley Scott with an all-star cast including Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz.
THE SUNSET LIMITED, a searing drama about two strangers who meet under extraordinary circumstances, stars Emmy Award-winner Joe Spano ("NCIS," "Hill Street Blues," "NYPD Blue" and Rubicon's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) and Tucker Smallwood ("Contact," "Traffic," "Star Trek Enterprise," and "The Sarah Silverman Program"). McCarthy is best known for his Southern Gothic, Western and Post-Apocalyptic genre novels, including "All the Pretty Horses," "The Road" and "No Country for Old Men." The film adaptation of "No Country for Old Men" won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
THE SUNSET LIMITED, directed by Rubicon Associate Producer BRIan McDonald, combines pathos and humor. Says McDonald, "This beautifully crafted, consistently thought-provoking, and deeply intimate work asks us to consider what is true and important in life."
THE SUNSET LIMITED opens on Saturday, October 26 at 7 p.m. and runs through Sunday, November 17 at 2 p.m., with low-priced previews on Wednesday, October 23 at 7 p.m., Thursday, October 24 at 8 p.m. and Friday, October 25 at 8 p.m. at Rubicon Theatre Company, 1006 E. Main Street in Ventura, CA.
