DTF Announces Summer Line-Up
Dorset Theatre Festival just announced the line-up for its Summer 2014 Season: the six-time Tony Award-winning play ‘Red,’ by John Logan, starring Tim Daly; the world premiere of the comedy ‘Out of the City,’ by renowned playwright Leslie Ayvazian; the 20th anniversary revival of the smash comedy, ‘All in the Timing,’ by Tony Award-winner David Ives, and the 60th anniversary revival of the Agatha Christie classic, ‘The Mousetrap.’ ‘Travels with Mark Twain,’ created and performed by Tony Award-winner Ron Crawford, is drawn from Twain’s lectures, his adventures as a Mississippi steamboat pilot and his mining days out West, interspersed with selections from classics including Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn.
In addition, DTF will present three original works by nationally recognized playwrights. The series opens June 5 with Theresa Rebeck’s latest new work, ‘Zealot,’ starring Alfre Woodard. Nicole Burdette’s poignant new drama, ‘Utterly Changed’ will be featured on July 14. August 19, DTF will feature an original and hip new musical, ‘Dillingham City,’ from playwright Lucy Thurber and composer Matt Gould. All new play readings begin at 7 p.m., and feature a talk-back with the writer and creative team following the performance.
A new tiered pricing structure will allow theatre-goers of all budgets an affordable way to see great theatre. For information or to purchase tickets or season passes, call 802-867-2223 or go to dorsettheatrefestival.org.
