Christine Lahti to Lead Signature Theatre's PRIDE IN THE FALLS OF AUTREY MILL; Limited Engagement Set for 10/15-12/8
A highly esteemed stage actress, Ms. Lahti most recently starred on Broadway in "God of Carnage," off-Broadway in "Body of Water" at Primary Stages and Adam in Rapp's "Dreams of Flying, Dreams of Falling" at the Atlantic Theatre, for which she received a Drama League nomination. In addition, Lahti starred in "Three Hotels" co-starring Richard Dreyfuss at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. This presentation was a reprisal of her successful run in the play, which premiered at New York's Circle Rep Theater. She also received a Drama Desk nomination for her role. She also starred in the West Coast premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Wendy Wasserstein's final play "Third" at the Geffen Playhouse. The play also marked her third collaboration with the late playwright - the first being "The Heidi Chronicles" on Broadway in 1989 and "An American Daughter" for Lifetime in 2000. In 2010 she completed a month long stage run at the Geffen Playhouse in Nora and Delia Ephron's critically acclaimed "Love, Loss, and What I Wore."
Additional theatre credits include Jules Feiffer's "Little Murders," for which she received an Obie Award, Michael Weller's "Loose Ends," Noel Coward's "Present Laughter" with George C. Scott, both at the Circle in the Square, the off-Broadway revivals of John Guare's "Landscape of the Body" and Clifford Odets's "The Country Girl" with HAl Holbrook, David Mamet's "The Woods" at The Public Theater, for which she received a Theater World Award, Ted Tally's "Hooters" at Playwrights Horizons, and Steve Tisch's "Division Street" on Broadway.
