The Ford's Theatre 2012-13 season continues with a production of Thornton Wilder's treasured American drama "Our Town", directed by Stephen Rayne, now through February 24, 2013. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the show in the photos below!

Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama presents a timeless commentary on the transience of human existence. Teenagers George and Emily meet, fall in love, marry-and suffer the slings and arrows of everyday life. Wilder transforms their ordinary story into a poignant and captivating exploration of mortality and the interconnectivity of human beings. In celebration of the play's 75th-Anniversary year, Stephen Rayne ("The Heavens Are Hung In Black," "Sabrina Fair" and "Parade") directs a diverse cast, creating an "Our Town" for our time.

"'Our Town' is a play which transcends differences in culture, class and race, and speaks to the great themes common to all great art: love, death and marriage," said director Stephen Rayne. "From its first production in 1938, the play struck a powerful chord with the American psyche, and it is as fresh and relevant today as it was then. I am hoping to bring a fresh perspective to this great classic and present a production that Ford's and MR. Wilder will be proud of."

Ford's also offers a series of programs in conjunction with the 75th anniversary of "Our Town" including readings of Wilder's plays with local universities, a pre-performance seminar with author Penelope Niven and Thornton Wilder's nephew and literary executor Tappan Wilder, and a special celebration of the play's Broadway opening to include the presentation of The Thornton Wilder Society's "Thornton Wilder Prize."
