The world premiere of Nicky Silver’s Too Much Sun, starring Tony winner Linda Lavin, begins performances at the Vineyard Theatre on May 1. The play recently announced that it has extended its run through June 22. Opening night is set for May 18.
Directed by Mark Brokaw, Too Much Sun tells the story of Audrey Langham, 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.
In addition to Lavin, the cast of Too Much Sun includes Tony nominee Jennifer Westfeldt, Richard Bekins, Matt Dellapina, Ken Barnett and Matt Dickson.
