Get a first look at The Cast onstage in the photos below!
TEN CHIMNEYS peers into the backstage lives of the two most revered stars of the Broadway stage, Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. Set on the couple's legendary Wisconsin estate in 1938, love triangles and family dysfunction reveal themselves when the rehearsal process for an upcoming production of Chekhov's The Seagull becomes a true-to-life plot involving a young actress named Uta Hagen. Hilarious and heartwarming, TEN CHIMNEYS uncovers the depths of truth, loyalty and love in the private lives of these giants of the American Theatre.

Founded in 1994, The Peccadillo Theater Company is a not-for-profit arts organization dedicated to the rediscovery of classic American theater, particularly those works which, despite their obvious literary and theatrical value, are not regularly revived. In recent years, Peccadillo has broadened its mission to include original plays and musicals that share some of the virtues of classic American theater – qualities such as period style, well-defined characters and strong plotting. Such was the case with The Talk of the Town, an original musical about the legendary wits of the Algonquin Roundtable, several of whose plays Peccadillo has produced. And Zero Hour, a one-man show about the actor/comedian, Zero Mostel, whose appearance before the House Un-American Activities Committee was just as explosive as his stage performances.
TEN CHIMNEYS will play a limited Off-Broadway engagement through October 27th. The performance schedule is Wednesdays at 7 pm, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 pm, with matinees Saturday at 2 pm and Sunday at 3 pm. Tickets are available through www.ThePeccadillo.com.
