Kansas City Actors Theatre has announced the design team that will join the previously announced cast of Eugene O’Neill’s A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN, the second show of its fourteenth season, directed by Mark Robbins.
The production will feature Brian Paulette, Ashley Pankow, Victor Raider-Wexler, Chris Roady and Charlie Spillers. Paulette, who played Jamie Tyrone in KCAT’s 2013 production of LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT, will reprise his role.
The production team includes Gary Mosby (Scenic Designer), Emily Stovall (Costume Designer), Shane Rowse (Lighting Designer), Jonathan Robertson (Sound Designer), and Kyle Dyck (Technical Director).
A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN revisits protagonist Jamie Tyrone of O’Neill’s acclaimed LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT as he returns home to a recently-inherited tenement farm. There he reconnects with salty Irish farmer Phil Hogan and his larger-than-life daughter, Josie.
“Brian, who played Jamie Tyrone in LONG DAY’S JOURNEY…, was absolutely brilliant in the role and wanted to continue his exploration of that character with MOON…” said Artistic Chair John Rensenhouse. “Our production, then, became a matter of timing, and now is the time. Brian has a few more years of maturity on him and our focus on classics and modern classics has us anxious to, once again, produce a work by the playwright that many consider to be America’s greatest.”
A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN runs September 12th – 30th at Union Station’s City Stage. Tickets are between $28 and $47 and are available by contacting the Central Ticket Office at 816-235-6222 or online at www.kcactors.org.
