It is my pleasure to announce the full cast for Picnic, which will be directed by Roundabout Resident Director Sam Gold at the American Airlines this winter. The cast will feature Reed Birney, Maggie Grace, Elizabeth Marvel, Sebastian Stan, Mare Winnigham, Ellen Burstyn, Madeleine Martin, Ben Rappaport, Cassie Beck, Maddie Corman, and Chris Perfetti.
I am excited to have Mare Winningham, Ben Rapparort, and Maggie Grace making their Broadway debuts with us. Mare just ended a run Off-Broadway in Tribes, Ben recently starred in the sitcom “Outsourced,” and Maggie has many film and TV credits including “Lost” and reprising her role as Liam Neeson’s daughter in Taken 2.
As always it is wonderful to welcome back Roundabout Alumni: Reed Birney (The Dream of the Burning Boy, Tigers Be Still), Elizabeth Marvel (Misalliance), Chris Perfetti (Sons of the Prophet), and Madeleine Martin (Joe Egg).
I am also thrilled to welcome some new faces to Roundabout. Cassie Beck, a rising New York actor who recently starred in the premiere of The Drunken City at Playwrights Horizons, and the wonderful Maddie Corman, known for her role in Next Fall. Sebastian Stan has had recurring roles on “Political Animals” and “Gossip Girl” and appeared in Broadway in Talk Radio.
And it is truly an honor to welcome Ellen Burstyn to the Roundabout Family. Her incredible career has earned her Tony, Emmy, Golden Globe, and Academy Awards.
The fantastic design team includes Andrew Lieberman (sets), David Zinn (costumes), Jane Cox (lights), Jill BC Du Boff (sound), and Chase Brock (choreography).
I am thrilled to see this exciting and talented cast work with Sam on this compelling play. It is going to be a superb collaboration.
Picnic begins performances on December 14, 2012. Please visit our website for more information.
