Photo Flash: First Look at AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, Opening Tonight at Bainbridge Performing Arts
Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA) presents AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, running tonight, March 17, through April 2. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast onstage below!
Tracy Letts, in his Broadway debut, created a hugely ambitious, highly combustible saga that will leave viewers reeling. A vanished father. A pill-popping mother. Three sisters harboring shady little secrets. When the large Weston family unexpectedly reunites after Dad disappears, their Oklahoman family homestead explodes in a maelstrom of repressed truths and unsettling secrets. Mix in Violet, the drugged-up, scathingly acidic matriarch, and you've got a major new play that unflinchingly-and uproariously-exposes the dark side of the Midwestern American family.
Island Treasure Kate Carruthers leads a show-stopping cast featuring Gianni Truzzi as BEVERLY, Barbara Deering as VIOLET, Ann Ellis as BARBARA, Melissa Fenwick as IVY, Carrie Morgan as KAREN, Jennifer Pippin- Montanez as MATTIE FAE, McKenna Sanford as JEAN, Kalea Salvador as JOHNNA, Wayne Purves as CHARLES, Pete Benson as BILL, Geoff Schmidt as STEVE, Geoff Finney as LITTLE CHARLES, and Rob Burke as SHERIFF.
AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY appears at BPA through April 2. Tickets, $29 for adults, $24 for seniors, and $21 for students, youth, military, and teachers, may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org.
Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY is produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.
