Roundabout Theatre Company Announces the Cast of ‘Picnic’ on Broadway

cast-of-picnicThe Roundabout Theatre Company has just announced the cast for the new Broadway production of William Inge‘s Picnic.

Directed by Sam Gold, the show will star Reed Birney as “Howard Bevans”, Maggie Grace as “Madge Owens”, Elizabeth Marvel as “Rosemary Sydney”, Sebastian Stan as “Hal Carter”, Mare Winningham as “Flo Owens” and Ellen Burstyn as “Helen Potts”. 

The cast will also feature Madeleine Martin (Millie Owens), Ben Rappaport (Alan Seymour), Cassie Beck (Christine Schoenwalde), Maddie Corman (Irma Kronkite), Chris Perfetti (Bomber).

Picnic will begin previews on December 14th and open officially on January 13th at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street). 

This will be a limited engagement through February 24, 2013.

Sensual, passionate and delightfully funny, PICNIC is a timeless American classic about the line between restraint and desire.  It’s a balmy Labor Day in the American Heartland, and a group of women are preparing for a picnic… but they’ll have to lay a lot on the line before they can lay out the checkered cloths. When a handsome young drifter named Hal (Stan) arrives, his combination of uncouth manners and titillating charm sends the women reeling, especially the beautiful Madge (Grace). When Hal is forced out of town, Madge must decide whether their fleeting encounter is worth changing the course of her life.

Beginning October 22 at 10AM, tickets will go on-sale to the general public online at roundabouttheatre.org, by phone at (212) 719-1300, or in person at the American Airlines Theatre Box Office (227 W 42nd St, between 7th and 8th Aves).  Ticket prices range from $42.00-127.00.
