EUGENE O'NEILL THEATER CENTER ANNOUNCES CHRIS JONES
TO LEAD NATIONAL CRITICS INSTITUTE

Longtime Chicago Area Theater Critic & Columnist
Appointed Director of Summer Program

WATERFORD, CT (January 30, 2014) – The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center announces the appointment of Chris Jones, chief theater critic and a columnist for the Chicago Tribune, as Director of the O’Neill’s National Critics Institute (NCI), effective immediately.

The opening scene of Machinal takes place in a New York City subway car at rush hour and perfectly captures its claustrophobic feeling. Passengers are bumping into one another, eyes averted. For Helen (a hypnotic Rebecca Hall) life seems to be a series of confining and controlling moments that have ultimately taken their toll.

MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUB’S

TALES FROM RED VIENNA

BEGINS REHEARSALS TODAY

WORLD PREMIERE PLAY BY DAVID GRIMM

DIRECTED BY KATE WHORISKEY

STARRING
NINA ARIANDA, TINA BENKO, KATHLEEN CHALFANT
MICHAEL ESPER, MICHAEL GOLDSMITH, LUCAS HALL

Manhattan Theatre Club’s world premiere of TALES FROM RED VIENNA, the new play by David Grimm (Measure for Pleasure), directed by Kate Whoriskey (Ruined at MTC) begins rehearsals today starring Tony Award winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur), Lucille Lortel nominee Tina Benko (Jackie, “Brotherhood”), and Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and Obie Award winner Kathleen Chalfant (Wit, Angels in America), Michael Esper (American Idiot, The Four of Us), Michael Goldsmith (Off-Broadway debut), and Lucas Hall (Beyond the Horizon, Othello).

 

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical follows a formula that we have seen used before.  It was used to tell the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons in Jersey Boys.  Happily, the formula works here as it did in Jersey Boys.  The secret?  The music and lyrics are perfectly laid into a humorous and compact script by Douglas McGrath.
