A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS Begins Previews Tonight
Fellowship for Performing Arts' revival of Robert Bolt's Tony Award-winning play, A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS, a Machiavellian political-religious drama ripped from today's headlines, begins previews tonight, January 11, 2019, at The Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row (410 W. 42nd Street, New York, NY 10036). A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS will officially open on January 23 for a limited run through February 24, 2019.
As Sir Thomas More refuses to recognize Henry VIII's divorce and ascendancy as Supreme Head of the new Church of England, A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS reveals the risk of speaking truth to power and the clash that follows when fierce political will collides with deep moral conviction.
A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS stars Michael Countryman (Broadway: M. Butterfly, Six Degrees of Separation, TV: The Path) as Sir Thomas More, with Carolyn McCormick (Broadway: Equus, TV: Law and Order) as his wife, Lady Alice More. The cast also features John Ahlin (Broadway: Waiting for Godot, Journey's End) and Olivier Award nominee Kevyn Morrow (Ragtime) as well as three-time Daytime Emmy nominee Trent Dawson, Drama Desk Award winner David McElwee (The Wayside Motor Inn), Todd Cerveris (Broadway: South Pacific, TV: Homeland), Kim N. Wong (The Hard Problem, TV: The Deuce), Sean Dugan (Broadway: Next Fall, TV: Smash) and Harry Bouvy (Wicked National Tour).
A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS is directed by Christa Scott-Reed (Shadowlands), with scenic design by Steven C. Kemp (Cabaret), costume design by Theresa Squire (High Fidelity), lighting design by Aaron Porter (Songbird) and original music and sound design by Tony Award nominee John Gromada (The Screwtape Letters, The Trip to Bountiful).
