adaptation introduces us to the courtly young gentleman lawyer Newland
Archer; his traditional and demure fiancée May; and the free-spirited
Countess Ellen Olenska, who has come home from Europe, tainted by
scandal. From the moment Newland meets the Countess, he is torn between
virtue and desire, and all three are forced to make the agonizing
choice, ever old and ever new, between love and honor. Adapted for the
stage by Douglas McGrath. Tony Award Winner Doug Hughes will direct.
Four-time Tony Award winner Boyd Gaines leads the cast, which features
Sierra Boggess, Helen Cespedes, and Andrew Veenstra.
