Maxwell Caulfield Joins Cast of Epperson's My Deah

Maxwell Caulfield has been added to the cast of the world premiere production of My Deah by John Epperson (aka Lypsinka).  The comedy will be presented by Abingdon Theatre Company.

Previews begin October 13th prior to an official opening on October 25th. Mark Waldrop (Bea Arthur: Just Between Friends) directs.  Caulfield (Tryst, An Inspector Calls, the film Grease 2) replaces the previously-announced Bryan Batt in the show, which also stars Nancy Opel (Urinetown, Fiddler on the Roof) stars.

In addition to Opel and Caulfield, My Deah stars Peter Brouwer, Lori Gardner, Michael Hunsaker, Geoffrey Molloy, Jay Rogers, and Kevin Townley.

The show is, according to press notes, a "Southern-fried version of Euripides' Medea" that promises "more blood, more laughs, and more violence, all in the name of comedy. When My Deah Hedgepeth confronts her husband Gator, her friends, the Governor of Mississippi—and carries out her plans for revenge—y'all just might die laughin'!"
