Broadway alum Richard Chamberlain will join the previously announced Holly Hunter and Bill Pullman in the New Group’s production of Sticks and Bones. The first major revival of David Rabe’s play will begin performances at the Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center in October. First preview and opening night dates will be announced later.
Joining Chamberlain, Hunter and Pullman are Nadia Gan, Morocco Omari, Ben Schnetzer and Raviv Ullman.
Chamberlain has appeared on Broadway in The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady and The Night of the Iguana. His screen credits include The Last Wave, Petulia, The Towering Inferno and The Three Musketeers. Gan’s off-Broadway credits include Golden Child, The Shanghai Gesture and Shogun Macbeth. Omari returns to the New York stage after appearing on Broadway in A Time to Kill and A Streetcar Named Desire. Schnetzer’s screen credits include The Book Thief and the upcoming Warcraft, Punk’s Dead and The Riot Club. Ullman made his New York theater debut in 2012 in Russian Transport, also directed by Elliot. Since then, he has appeared in The Bad Guys and The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner.
Sticks and Bones tells the story of a family pulled about by the return of a son from the Vietnam War. Pullman and Hunter star as husband and wife Ozzie and Harriet.
The production will include set design by Derek McLane, costumes by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski, projection and video design by Olivia Sebesky and sound design and original music by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen.
