Grace announces full cast
MCC Theater has announced that Philip Goodwin as ï¿½Tony,ï¿½ Oscar Isaac as ï¿½Tomï¿½ and K.K. Moggie as ï¿½Ruth,ï¿½ will join the previously announced Lyn Redgrave as 'Grace,' in the American premiere of Mick Gordon and AC Graylingï¿½s Grace, to be directed by Joseph Hardy, which will open at the Lucille Lortel Theatre on 11 Feb 2008, following previews from 23 Jan and running through to 8 Mar 2008.
Grace: Friedman is a mother, a wife and a brilliant professor. Her bold assertions on the 'absurdity'of religion have propelled her to center stage in the public debate over the existence of God. But Graceï¿½s private calm is severely shaken when her son, Tom, announces a career change from civil rights attorney to priest. When Grace falls back on her well-worn cynicism, she is suddenly at odds with the moral pragmatism of her husband, Tony and Tomï¿½s fiancï¿½e, Ruth. Together, the family must strive to reconcile their ideological differences as they tumble toward an all-too-real personal catastrophe.
Lynn Redgrave (Grace) was last seen in New York when she played Mrs. Culver in the Roundabout's Broadway revival of 'The Constant Wife' (2005), for which she was nominated for a 2006 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play.
