TACT continues the 2016 - '17 season with the World Premiere of The Gravedigger's Lullaby, a play that arrives on the Mainstage by way of the company's 2015 newTACTics New Play Festival, where it was workshopped and developed. The Gravedigger's Lullaby opened on Sunday, March 12th, for a strictly limited run through Saturday April 1st at The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues). BroadwayWorld has photos from the opening festivities below!
The cast for The Gravedigger's Lullaby includes TACT Company Members Jeremy Beck (She Stoops to Conquer, Widowers' Houses), TEd Koch (Death of a Salesman, Abundance), Todd Lawson (Summer and Smoke, Abundance), and Guest Artist KK Moggie ("The Good Wife"). The design team includes Wilson Chin (scenic), Matthew Richards (lighting), Tracy Christensen (costume), Toby Algya (sound), Will Van Dyke (original music), and Andrew Diaz (props).
Written by TACT company member and Outer Critic Circle and Laurents/ Hatcher Foundation Award winner Jeff Talbott and directed by company member Jenn Thompson, the play tells the seemingly simple story of Baylen, an honest hardworking gravediggerfighting to feed his family in a world that threatens to bury him.
