‘Frasier’ Alums to Reunite at DTF
Dorset Theatre Festival will open its 42nd season on June 20 with a revival of Noël Coward’s ‘Private Lives,’ directed by Evan Yionoulis. Casting has also been announced for Wendy MacLeod’s ‘Slow Food,’ the Festival’s season closer. Peri Gilpin and Dan Butler, who played Roz Doyle and Bulldog Briscoe on the NBC sitcom Frasier, will star alongside Broadway veteran Greg Stuhr in this new comedy directed by Jackson Gay. The play is “fantastic,” according to Gilpin. “It’s so fun to read. I mean, this play is a riot,” she said, elaborating on what motivates her upcoming stint acting in Dorset. “It’s almost like food – you have to do it.” In the play, a young couple just want to have a nice meal out on their anniversary – but their highly neurotic waiter won’t bring them their food, and has them examining everything from their menu
choices to their future together. It opens August 22 for a limited engagement. For detail and tickets, call 802-867-2223, Tuesday through Friday, 12 to 4 p.m., or visit dorsettheatrefestival.org.
