Photo Flash: First Look at Marisa Tomei, Christopher Abbott & More in THE ROSE TATTOO at Williamstown Theatre Festival

Williamstown Theatre Festival opens the 2016 Season with Tennessee Williams' Tony Award-winning play, The Rose Tattoo, now playing through July 17. Obie Award-winner Trip Cullman directs Academy Award-winner Marisa Tomei in this new production, a new production of this intoxicating comedy, which won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1951. After retreating from the world in grief, widow Serafina (Tomei) revives and rejoins the world when the hot-blooded trucker Alvaro (Christopher Abbott) arrives at her doorstep. Passion, gossip, music and mystery fill the air in this steamy Gulf Coast town, where possibility and promise ignite. Check out photos below!

The cast includes Academy Award-winner Tomei, along with Abbott ("Girls"), Katie Lee Hill (The Wildness), Darren Pettie ("Mad Men"), Will Pullen (Goat), Portia (Ruined) Lindsay Mendez (Wicked), Barbara Rosenblat ("Orange Is the New Black") and Constance Shulman ("Orange Is the New Black").

The Rose Tattoo begins previews Tuesday, June 28th and is scheduled through Sunday, July 17th. Stay for talkbacks after the performances on July 5th and July 12th or the special Lawn Talk before the July 10th show.
