Tony nominee Jennifer Westfeldt will join the previously announced Linda Lavin in the cast for the world premiere of Nicky Silver’s Too Much Sun off-Broadway. Directed by Mark Brokaw, the play will begin performances on May 1 at the Vineyard Theatre prior to an official opening on May 18. Tickets are now available for the production.
Joining Lavin and Westfeldt (Wonderful Town) in the cast are Richard Bekins (Tartuffe), Matt Dellapina, Ken Barnett (Wonderful Town) and Matt Dickson (War Horse).
Too Much Sun tells the story of Audrey Langham (Lavin), a celebrated actress who unravels completely while preparing for a new production of Medea. With nowhere else to go, she descends upon her married daughter for a summer by the sea. She is not, however, greeted with confetti and champagne. Her arrival sets off a chain of events alternately hilarious and harrowing.
Too Much Fun will feature scenic design by Donyale Werle, lighting design by David Lander, costume design by Michael Krass and sound design by David Van Tieghem.
