The most faithful screen adaptation of the acclaimed bestseller, John Steinbeck's East of Eden, debuts on DVD from Acorn Media on March 3, 2009.

The stellar cast features Jane Seymour, Lloyd Bridges, Timothy Bottoms, Bruce Boxleitner, Warren Oates, Sam Bottoms, Karen Allen, and Anne Baxter. The award-winning miniseries aired on ABC in 1981 and won Golden Globes? for best miniseries and best actress for Jane Seymour (Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman). Special features include a new, exclusive interview with Ms. Seymour. Acclaimed author John Steinbeck (The Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice and Men) considered East of Eden his quintessential novel.

Spanning the Civil War through World War I, the story follows three generations of the tumultuous Trask family as it explores the nature of good and evil, the origin of sin, and the hope of reconciliation.

Westport County Playhouse Rejiggers Schedule; Around the World in 80 Days to Open Season
by BWW News Desk - Jan 14, 2009

Westport Country Playhouse incoming artistic director Mark Lamos and managing director Michael Ross announce a new look to the 2009 season. The Playhouse will open its 79th season in April with 'Around the World in 80 Days' directed by Michael Evan Haney. 'Around the World in 80 Days' was original scheduled for a September run, but will now open the 2009 season. 'Around the World in 80 Days,' an adventure tale adapted from the book by Jules Verne and written by Mark Brown, will play April 21 through May 9. Hailed by the New Yorker as 'a riveting testament to the ingeniousness of the human imagination,' and heralded by Associated Press as 'a clever, action-packed production skillfully directed by Michael Evan Haney,' 'Around the World in 80 Days' is a wild, global adventure for the whole family about Phileas Fogg and his ever loyal man-servant Passepartout---complete with elephants, steamboats and trains. Following 'Around the World in 80 Days,' the season's second play will be 'Children,' a timeless and touching family drama by A.R. Gurney, the playwright who penned 'The Dining Room,' 'Sylvia' and 'Love Letters.' It will run May 26 through June 13. When their mysterious brother, Pokey, returns to the family's beachside vacation home, all the family plans crumble as love affairs and family secrets explode. Westport favorite John Tillinger will direct. (more...)
