All-American: LCT3 announce complete cast
LCT3, Lincoln Center Theater's programming initiative devoted to producing the work of new artists and developing new audiences, has announced that Rebecca Creskoff, Meredith Forlenza, Brock Harris, Sarah Steele, C.J. Wilson and Harry Zittelin will star in its world premiere production of All-American, a new play by Julia Brownell, directed by Evan Cabnet.
All-American will open at The Duke on 42nd Street on 7 Nov 2011, following previews from 24 Oct, and play through to 19 Nov 2011.
All-American: The story of a modern American family: suburban dad and former NFL star Mike Slattery (C.J. Wilson) works hard to make his daughter Katie (Meredith Forlenza) the new star quarterback at her new school while ignoring her brainy twin brother Aaron (Harry Zittel). But Katie isn't sure she wants to keep playing and Mike's wife Beth (Rebecca Creskoff) isn't sure she wants to keep playing along.
The creative team features sets by Lee Savage, costumes by Jessica Wegener, lighting by Japhy Weideman and sound by Jill BC DuBoff.
Julia Brownell is a writer on the critically-acclaimed HBO half-hour series "Hung." Her sex comedy feature film "F***ing Engaged" was optioned by FilmNation with Jessica Biel attached to star and produce. Her play 'Smart Cookie' was the winner of 2008 Kendeda Graduate Playwriting Award, which had its world premiere at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta. Julia's short play 'Good Girl' was produced at the Actors Theatre of Louisville and was a finalist for the National Ten-Minute Play Contest.
Evan Cabnet recently directed the world premiere of David West Read's 'The Dream of the Burning Boy' at the Roundabout Theatre Company. He has directed new plays at a variety of NY theaters including the Cherry Lane, Atlantic Theater Company, Rattlestick and Naked Angels. His regional credits include productions at the Denver Center Theatre, the Long Wharf Theater and Williamstown Theatre Festival.
In late spring 2012, LCT3 will move into its new home, the 131-seat Claire Tow Theater, currently being built on the roof of the Vivian Beaumont Theater. In addition, Lincoln Center Theater will reopen LCT3's recent production of '4000 Miles,' a new play by Amy Herzog, directed by Daniel Aukin, as part of its regular Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater season in April 2012.
