Additionally, Broadway alum Beau Bridges (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) will be directed by Lucille Lortel winner Joe Calarco (Shakespeare’s R&J) in Coach: An Evening with John Wooden. The play about the famed UCLA basketball coach is written by John Wilder.
Rounding out the festival’s offerings are Daniel Gerroll (Enchanted April, High Society) in Jeffrey Hatcher’s Dr. Glas, directed by Lisa Peterson; and Joy Nash (AMC’s Dietland) in the Kent Nicholson-helmed When It’s You by Courtney Baron.
