Photo Flash: THE STONE WITCH Celebrates Opening Night at the Westside Theatre

Producers Darlene Kaplan, Laura Janik Cronin and Scott Newsome, in association with Alec Seymour, SPF Group and Susanne Adamski, present the Off-Broadway premiere of The Stone Witch, a play by Shem Bitterman (A Death in Colombia, Influence). The Stone Witch has its official opening last night. See all the red carpet arrivals below!

Directed by Steve Zuckerman (Nuts, "Murphy Brown") the three-member cast features Dan Lauria ("The Wonder Years," Lombardi) as Simon Grindberg, with Rupak Ginn(Shakespeare at Fenway, "Royal Pains") as Peter Chandler, and Carolyn McCormick(Equus, "Law & Order") as Clair Forlorni.

Extraordinary art must be tamed. Simon Grindberg is the world's most illustrious children's book writer and illustrator -but his next masterpiece is a decade overdue. Peter Chandler is a starving artist with unparalleled potential-but he doesn't yet know his own value. The two men are thrown together by Clair Forlorni, an ambitious editor who hopes Peter's youthful exuberance can unleash Simon's aging genius for one final story. But creativity comes at a cost. The Stone Witch is a wondrous, hopeful and heartbreaking new play where imagination runs wild. The world premiere production of The Stone Witch was produced at The Berkshire Theatre Group in association with Darlene Kaplan Entertainment and Brierpatch Productions in 2016.

The creative team for The Stone Witch includes Yael Pardess (set & projection art content design), Mimi Maxmen (costume design), Betsy Adams (lighting design), Christopher Cronin (sound design), Brad Peterson (projection design), and Roger Bellon(composer). The Production Stage Manager is J.P. Elins with Assistant Stage Manger Michael Friedlander.

The Stone Witch plays the following performance schedule: Monday and Tuesday at 7:00 p.m., Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m., Friday at 8:00 pm., Saturday at 2:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m., and Sunday at 3:00 p.m. Please note: There is no Thursday performance.
