Emmy Award-winning actor Richard Schiff (The West Wing) will make his Shakespeare Theatre Company mainstage debut when he stars in Eugene O’Neill’s Hughie during STC’s 2012-2013 Season. This new offering will replace the previously announced production of George Bernard Shaw’s Man and Superman.
Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (STC’s The Little Foxes, Broadway’s Doubt) will direct the production, which will run at the Lansburgh Theatre January 31–March 17, 2013.
One of Eugene O’Neill’s later works, Hughie is a commanding study of Erie Smith, a man whose illusions of a grand lifestyle are wavering after the death of the stranger who quietly validated his larger-than-life confidence.
STC plans to include Shaw’s Man and Superman in a future season.
