Aidan Quinn Joins 'Tusculum' at The Public with Dennehy, Reuben

Aidan Quinn will complete the cast of Richard Nelson's new history play Conversations in Tusculum at the Public Theater.  Directed by Nelson, Quinn will play Brutus alongside the previously announced Brian Dennehy as Cicero, Joe Grifasi as Syrus, Gloria Reuben as Porcia, David Strathairn as Cassius, and Maria Tucci as Servilia.

Conversations in Tusculum begins previews on Tuesday, February 19 and will run through Sunday, March 23 with an official press opening on Tuesday, March 11 at 7 PM.  Single tickets are available to the general public on February 3, 2008 but member tickets are currently on sale.

"The country you love and the values it represents are being destroyed by a misguided leader. You can continue to live in relative comfort by not involving yourself, or you can take action to save the democracy you love. Set outside of Rome in the villas and hillsides of Tusculum, Richard Nelson continues his revelatory exploration of history with a new play that chronicles those entangled in Julius Caesar's world of manipulation and power," explain press notes.

Aidan Quinn (Brutus) starred on Broadway in A Streetcar Named Desire and off-Broadway in Fool for Love, Lie of the Mind, The Exonerated and Salome.
