Coeurage Theatre Company to Stage Tennessee Williams' VIEUX CARRE

Coeurage Theatre Company, LA's Pay What You Want Company, has announced the first production of its 2016 season, Tennessee Williams' Vieux Carré. Directed by Jeremy Lelliott, there will be one preview performance on February 12 at 8pm and opening is set for Saturday, February 13 at 8pm. Vieux Carré will play through March 12 at the Historic Lankershim Arts Center.

The cast will feature (in alphabetical order) Tony Brown, Melinda deKay, Dieterich Gray, Leontine Guilliard, Graham Kurtz, Jay Lee, Carryl Lynn, Sandy Mansson, Jonathan Kells Phillips, Sammi Smith, and Shaun Taylor-Corbett. Scenic design is by JR Bruce, lighting design is by Brandon Baruch, costume design is by Magdalena Guillen, foley design is by Jeff Gardner, and fight choreography is by TJ Marchbank. The stage manager is Megan Laughlin.

Vieux Carré will take audiences through the doors of 722 Rue Toulouse, a boarding house in the heart of New Orleans, and into the most personal memories of American playwriting master Tennessee Williams. A lifelong effort and Williams' most autobiographical work, The New York Times said, "Vieux Carré is a crazy quilt of beauty and squalor, eloquence and vulgarity, comedy and pathos - a ready-made aesthetic mashup that presents Williams at his most poetic in one scene, and his most frankly sexual in another."

There will be one preview performance on Friday, February 12 at 8pm and opening is set for Saturday, February 13 at 8pm. The regular running schedule is Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8pm through March 12. All seats are available on a Pay What You Want basis and may be reserved online at or by calling (323) 944-2165.

The Historic Lankershim Arts Center is located at 5108 Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood, 91601.
