CAST AND CREATIVE TEAM ANNOUNCED FOR
ARTISTIC DIRECTOR BARRY EDELSTEIN’S
OLD GLOBE DIRECTORIAL DEBUT,
SHAKESPEARE’S THE WINTER’S TALE


Golden Globe Award Nominee Billy Campbell
Returns to the Globe to Head the Cast

SAN DIEGO (Jan. 17, 2014)—The Old Globe today announced the complete cast and creative team for Shakespeare’s spellbinding romance The Winter’s Tale. Artistic Director Barry Edelstein makes his Old Globe directorial debut with the show, the first indoor Shakespeare production at the Globe in over a decade. The Winter’s Tale will run Feb. 8 – March 16, 2014 on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the Old Globe Theatre, part of the Globe’s Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Preview performances run Feb. 8 – Feb. 12. Opening night is Thursday, Feb. 13 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online at www.TheOldGlobe.org, by phone at (619) 23-GLOBE, or by visiting the Box Office at 1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park.

NPR calls Old Globe Artistic Director Barry Edelstein “one of the country’s leading Shakespeareans.” Now Edelstein’s work takes center stage with The Winter’s Tale, Shakespeare’s most enchanting masterpiece, featuring a powerful musical score written expressly for the production by acclaimed classical composer Michael Torke. The Winter’s Tale sweeps breathtakingly from tragedy to comedy and along the way visits kings and queens, dancing shepherds, a most extraordinary statue, and one notoriously hungry bear before it reaches its stunning, magical conclusion.

“I am beyond thrilled to begin my tenure as Artistic Director at this great American Shakespeare theater by staging my favorite of the Bard’s plays,” said Edelstein. “I’m glad to be escorting Shakespeare back indoors at the Globe for the first time in a decade, and I’m very fortunate to be collaborating with an amazing company of actors, a first-rate design team, and a major composer. All in all, it’s an embarrassment of riches.”

Acclaimed stage and screen actor Billy Campbell (Leontes) returns to the Globe following performances in the celebrated productions of Much Ado About Nothing (2003) and The Comedy of Errors (1997). Campbell currently stars as Dr. Alan Farragut on the new SyFy Channel drama “Helix.” He is perhaps best known for his lead role on the series “Once and Again,” for which he received a Golden Globe Award nomination, and the cult favorite film The Rocketeer. His other theatre credits include Fortinbras (Ovation Award) and Roundabout Theatre Company’s Hamlet, and his television and film credits include “The Killing,” “The 4400,” “Crime Story,” “Dynasty,” Gettysburg, Enough, and Dracula.

The cast of The Winter’s Tale also features Erin Elizabeth Adams (Dorcas), Jordi Bertran (Mamillius), Meaghan Boeing (Emilia), Lindsay Brill (Mopsa), Angel Desai (Paulina), Jamal Douglas (Mariner), Kushtrim Hoxha (Cleomenes), Paul Kandel (Autolycus, Archidamus), Maya Kazan (Perdita), A.Z. Kelsey (Florizel), Mark Nelson (Antigonus, Old Shepherd), Natacha Roi (Hermione), Robbie Simpson (Dion), Brendan Spieth (Clown), Paul Michael Valley (Polixenes), Cornell Womack (Camillo), Patrick Zeller (Jailer), and Nadia Guevara and Albert Park (Ensemble).

The creative team includes Wilson Chin (Scenic Design), Judith Dolan (Costume Design), Russell H. Champa (Lighting Design), Fitz Patton (Sound Design), Michael Torke (Original Music), Taylor Peckham (Music Director), Bryan Byrnes (Fight Director), Jan Gist (Voice and Dialect Coach), Caparelliotis Casting (Casting), and Anjee Nero (Stage Manager).

The Winter’s Tale is supported in part through gifts from 2014 Shakespeare Sponsor Qualcomm Foundation and Production Sponsors John A. Berol, Karen and Donald Cohn, Elaine and Dave Darwin, and Kathryn Hattox. Additional support is provided by HoyleCohen.

Old Globe Artistic Director Barry Edelstein is a stage director, producer, author, and educator. Widely recognized as one of the leading authorities on the works of Shakespeare in the United States, he has directed nearly half of the Bard’s works. As Director of the Shakespeare Initiative at The Public Theater (2008-2012), he oversaw all of the company’s Shakespearean productions, as well as its extensive educational, community outreach, and artist-training programs. At The Public, Edelstein staged Julius Caesar starring Jeffrey Wright for Shakespeare in the Park and The Merchant of Venice featuring Ron Leibman’s Obie Award-winning portrayal of Shylock. He was also Associate Producer of The Public’s Broadway production of The Merchant of Venice starring Al Pacino. From 1998-2003 he was Artistic Director of Classic Stage Company, where he produced and directed some of New York’s most memorable classical productions. Edelstein’s Shakespearean directorial credits include The Winter’s Tale with David Strathairn, Timon of Athens with Richard Thomas, As You Like It with Gwyneth Paltrow, and Richard III with John Turturro. His additional credits include the Lucille Lortel Award-winning revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons; the world premiere of Steve Martin’s The Underpants, which he commissioned; Molière’s The Misanthrope starring Uma Thurman in her stage debut; and the world premiere of novelist Nathan Englander’s play The Twenty-Seventh Man. Edelstein has taught Shakespearean acting at The Juilliard School, NYU’s Graduate Acting Program, and the University of Southern California. His book Thinking Shakespeare (called by New York magazine “a must-read for actors”) was published in 2007 and is now the standard text on American Shakespearean acting. He is also the author of Bardisms: Shakespeare for All Occasions.

A REMINDER: Balboa Park’s 100-year-old Cabrillo Bridge, which provides access to Laurel Street and the west side of the Park, will be closed to automobiles and vehicular traffic through April during Caltrans’ seismic retrofitting process. To access The Old Globe during this repair period, vehicle traffic should enter Balboa Park from the east via Park Boulevard and President’s Way. Alcazar Garden, the Organ Pavilion, and the Hall of Champions lots all offer ample parking. The bridge will remain accessible to pedestrians and bicycles, so patrons could arrive a bit earlier and enjoy the short walk across the iconic bridge towards Plaza de Panama and the historic views of the California Tower and Dome. For directions and up-to-date information, please visit www.TheOldGlobe.org/Directions.
