Cymbeline, directed by Mark Lamos, to play at the Vivian Beaumont

It has now been officially confirmed that Mark Lamos is to direct the Lincoln Center Theater's production of William Shakespeare's comedy Cymbeline.

The production will open on 2 Dec 2007, following previews from 1 Nov and run through to 6 Jan 2008.

Cymbeline: An evil stepmother, an invading army, a headless corpse, ghosts and a divine visit from Jupiter hurtle us towards an astonishing conclusion in this saga of politics, the supernatural and love. Lynchpin of the story is one of Shakespeare's greatest female characters, the impulsive and sensual Imogen.

His other Broadway credits include: Our Country's Good (1991); The Deep Blue Sea (1998 revival); The Gershwins' Fascinating Rhythm (1999). Lamos served as artistic director of Hartford Stage Company from 1980 to 1997. The company received the 1989 Tony Regional Theatre Award under his tenure.
