Arena Stage announces full casting for Lillian Hellman’s Watch on the Rhine, winner of the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play. Four-time Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Marsha Mason, known for her performances in the films Cinderella Liberty, The Goodbye Girl, Chapter Two and Only When I Laugh, stars as Fanny Farrelly under esteemed director Jackie Maxwell, former artistic director of Canada’s Shaw Festival. Set in Washington, D.C. on the brink of U.S. involvement in World War II, Hellman’s suspenseful drama was hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “dramatically gripping and genuinely moving.” Watch on the Rhine runs February 3-March 5, 2017 in the Fichandler Stage.
The production features Andrew Long (Broadway’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Arena Stage’s Good People) as Kurt Muller, Lise Bruneau (Broadway’s The Cherry Orchard, Arena Stage’s Mother Courage and Her Children) as Sara Muller, J Anthony Crane (national tour of The Lion King) as Teck De Brancovis and Thomas Keegan (Ford’s Theatre’s The Glass Menagerie) as David Farrelly.
