Too Much Sun: something we never thought we’d say after this winter. The world premiere of Nicky Silver’s play celebrates its official opening night on May 18 at the Vineyard Theatre. The show stars Tony winner Linda Lavin and nominee Jennifer Westfeldt.
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 and Westfeldt, the cast includes Richard Bekins, Matt Dellapina, Ken Barnett and Matt Dickson. Too Much Sun will play an extended run through June 22.
