Photo Flash: First Look at THE SISTERS ROSENSWEIG at Theater J
Theater J presents the Tony Award-nominated THE SISTERS ROSENSWEIG by Wendy Wasserstein, which plays now through February 21, 2016. This heartfelt comedy follows the three Rosensweig sisters who are different as can be - a no-nonsense international banker, a kvelling mother of four and a bohemian world-traveling journalist. When the three hilariously reunite at Sara's London home for her 54th birthday celebration, a barrage of suitors and unexpected revelations make for one remarkable weekend. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
THE SISTERS ROSENSWEIG will be directed by Kasi Campbell, who has directed dozens of productions at Rep Stage, Washington Stage Guild, Theatre Alliance, Maryland Opera Studio, Source Theatre, WSC Avant Bard and Spooky Action Theatre. She received the Helen Hayes Award in 2004 for Outstanding Director and has garnered multiple nominations. She served as the Associate Artistic Director of Rep Stage for 14 years and is currently an Associate Professor of Theatre at Howard Community College.
The three sisters will be played by Susan Lynskey (Body Awareness at Theater J; Hay Fever and The 39 Steps at Olney Theatre Center), Susan Rome (The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide... and After the Revolution at Theater J) and Kimberly Schraf (The Admission and After the Fall at Theater J). The cast also features Josh Adams (The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide... at Theater J; Appropriate at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company), Edward Christian (The Hampton Years at Theater J; Taming of the Shrew and Henry V at Folger Theatre), Michael Russotto (Hay Fever and Rancho Mirage at Olney Theatre Center), James Whalen (The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide..., Race and The Argument at Theater J) and Caroline Wolfson (The Fix at Signature Theatre; Hair at Keegan Theatre).
