Brian Murray, Mia Dillon and Gordana Rashovich star in the Noel Coward’s bittersweet comedy -- and one of his last works -- “A Song at Twilight” at Hartford Stage.
Mark Lamos, former artistic director of Hartford Stage and now at Westport Country Playhouse, directs the play which will also be presented at his theater for a run beginning April 29.
The Hartford run dates are Feb. 20 to March 16. Also in the cast is Yale School of Drama grad Nicholas Carriere.
The play takes place in a Swiss hotel where a famous writer and his embittered wife await the arrival of his old flame -- and her stack of incriminating letters.
Murray credits include Hartford Stage’s “Edgardo Mine,” Hartford Stage’s “Old Masters” and Broadway’s “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead,” “The Little Foxes” and “The Crucible.” Dillon’s credits include Broadway;s “Crimes of the Heart,” “Da” and “Hay Fever.”Rashovich’s many Hartford Stage shows include “Othello,” “Light Up the Sky,” “Richard III” and “A Shayna Madel” which transferred to Broadway.
