I Never Sang for my Father: Marsha Mason joins cast
Keen Company in association with Wiltsie Bridge Productions have announced that Academy Award-nominee Marsha Mason will join previously announced Keir Dullea and Matt Servitto in the upcoming revival of Robert Anderson's I Never Sang for My Father opening at Theatre Row's Clurman Theater on 4 Apr 2010, following previews from 23 Mar and runnig through to 1 May 2010.
Four-time Academy Award-nominee Marsha Mason recently appeared on Broadway in 'Impressionism' and 'Steel Magnolias,' and Off-Broadway in 'A Feminine Ending' at Playwrights Horizons. She is known to fans of the sitcom 'Frasier' as Martin Crane's boisterous girlfriend 'Sherry.'
Directed by Jonathan Silverstein, I Never Sang for My Father marks the second Anderson play presented by Keen, following the success of its 2007 critically acclaimed production of 'Tea & Sympathy.'
I Never Sang for My Father explores one son's struggle to balance his own happiness with the needs of his aging parents, and his yearning for a closer relationship with the father he cannot change. Gene Garrsion (Servitto) is a grown man with a successful career, but when his parents (Dullea and Mason) arrive for a visit, he finds himself in that awkward position of feeling like a child again.
When tragedy strikes, Gene is forced to examine his responsibility to himself and his family in new ways. A complex portrait of a family in flux, this moving work by Robert Anderson explores what it means to be a man and a son at the same time.
This production will also feature Rose Courtney and Melissa Miller.
