Photo Coverage: Bill W. and Dr. Bob Press Preview

A press preview of Bill W. and Dr. Bob, by Stephen Bergman and Janet Surrey, was recently held.  The show will be given its Off-Broadway premiere on Stage 2 at New World Stages. Previews begin February 16, 2007 toward an opening on March 5. 

Bill W. and Dr. Bob is, "believed to be the first play to depict the relationship between Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith and the early days of Alcoholics Anonymous, a rich, provocative dramatization of what remains one of the most enduring, if unlikely, success stories in American history."  Bill W. and Dr. Bob is directed by Rick Lombardo, who directed the play's sold-out engagement earlier this year at New Repertory Theatre in Boston.

The cast from the New Repertory Theatre production will repeat their roles for the play's Off-Broadway run: Robert Krakovski as Bill W., Patrick Husted as Dr. Bob, Rachel Harker as Lois Wilson, and Kathleen Doyle as Anne Smith. Also in the cast are Marc Carver and Deanna Dunmyer.
