Photo Flash: THE GENTLEMAN CALLER Celebrates Opening Night

Abingdon Theatre Company has launched its 25th Anniversary main stage season with The Gentleman Caller, the New York premiere production of a new play by Philip Dawkins. Check out photos from opening night below!

Directed by Tony Speciale, the limited engagement runs through May 26 at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre (38 Commerce Street, NYC) in Greenwich Village. Tickets are currently on sale at abingdontheatre.org or by calling Ovationtix at 212-352-3101.

The Gentleman Caller features Daniel K. Isaac (Showtime's "Billions") as William Inge and Juan Francisco Villa (Oedipus El Rey) as Tennessee Williams. Although now regarded as two of history's finest American Playwrights, back in 1944, William Inge and Tennessee Williams hadn't yet experienced anything close to success. The Gentleman Caller takes us back in time, before the Chicago premiere of The Glass Menagerie. Inge, a dissatisfied newspaper critic, invites Williams to his St. Louis apartment for an interview. This sexy, fraught rendezvous sparks a relationship, which radically alters the course of their lives and the American Theatre.

The Gentleman Caller features a scenic design by Sara C. Walsh (Queen of the Night), costume design by Hunter Kaczorowski (The Dork Knight ), lighting design by Zach Blane (Too Much, Too Much, Too Many), and sound design and original music by Christian Frederickson (Antigone, Trojan Women).
