Photo Coverage: The Cast of LOG CABIN Takes its Opening Night Bows
The world premiere of Log Cabin, a new play by Pulitzer Prize finalist Jordan Harrison, and directed by Tony Award and Obie Award winner Pam MacKinnon, opened last night! Check out photos of the cast's opening night bows below!
The cast of Log Cabin features Obie Award winner Phillip James Brannon (Bootycandy at Playwrights, The Antipodes, The City of Conversation), Cindy Cheung (Iowa at Playwrights, "High Maintenance," "13 Reasons Why"), five-time Emmy Award nominee and two-time Drama Desk Award winner, stage and screen star Jesse Tyler Ferguson("Modern Family," Fully Committed, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), stand-up comedian and actor Ian Harvie ("Transparent," Margaret Cho's Sensuous Woman, The Ian Harvie Show), Talene Monahon(Tell Hector I Miss Him, The Wild Party, Permission) and Dolly Wells (The Whirligig, "Doll & Em," Bridget Jones's Diary).
It's a faraway age of hope and inclusivity; in other words, it's 2015. When a tight-knit circle of married gays and lesbians - comfy in the new mainstream - sees themselves through the eyes of their rakish transgender pal (Mr. Harvie), it's clear that the march toward progress is anything but unified. With stinging satire and acute compassion, Jordan Harrison's pointed comedy charts the breakdown of empathy that happens when we think our rights are secure, revealing conservative hearts where you'd least expect.
The production will feature scenic design by Tony Award nominee and Obie Award winner Allen Moyer, costume design by Lortel Award winner Jessica Pabst, lighting design by Obie Award winner Russell H. Champa and sound design by Lortel Award winner Leah Gelpe. Production Stage Manager is Amanda Spooner.
The performance schedule for Log Cabin will be Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 7PM, Thursdays and Fridays at 8PM, Saturdays at 2:30 & 8PM and Sundays at 2:30 & 7:30 PM.
