MTC Announces Full Casting for Terrance McNally’s ‘Golden Age’

manhattan theatre clubManhattan Theatre Club’s upcoming production of Golden Age, the new play by four-time Tony Award winner Terrence McNally and directed by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie, has announced its full cast.

The show will star Tony Award winner Richard Easton (The Invention of Love), Dierdre Friel (Dogfight), Coco Monroe (New York debut), two-time Emmy and two-time Tony Award winner Bebe Neuwirth (Chicago,), Emmy Award nominee Lee Pace ( “Pushing Daisies”), Ethan Phillips (November), Lorenzo Pisoni (Humor Abuse), Will Rogers (Unnatural Acts), and Eddie Kaye Thomas (The Submission).

Lee Pace is wonderful so this is definitely something I’d like to check out.

The limited engagement of GOLDEN AGE will begin previews Tuesday, November 13 and open Tuesday, December 4 at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street).

Here’s the synopsis: Its opening night of Vincenzo Bellini’s (Emmy Award nominee Lee Pace) new opera I Puritani in Paris, and the Italian composer is determined to win the adulation of not only his audience, but his colleagues and rivals as well. When the curtain falls, will a thunderous ovation cement his prominence? Or has Bellini unwittingly composed his own swan song?

Blending 21st century language with the timeless beauty of 19th century bel canto opera, Terrence McNally’s new play, portrays the final act of an artist whose desire for greatness has eclipsed all else.
