PRLog - Nov. 1, 2011 - Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner CANDICE BERGEN, five-time Tony Award winner ANGELA LANSBURY, Tony and Emmy Award winner JOHN LARROQUETTE and Drama Desk Award winner and Academy Award nominee MICHAEL McKEAN will join the previously announced JAMES EARL JONES in the Spring 2012 Broadway revival of Gore Vidal’s THE BEST MAN (http://broadwaysbestshows.com/show/Gore-Vidal-s-The-Best-Man).

The play will be directed by MICHAEL WILSON, who received the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding Director of a Play for the acclaimed epic production of Horton Foote’s The Orphans Home Cycle Part I, II and III at the Signature Theatre Company, and also directed Foote’s Dividing the Estate on Broadway.

Gore Vidal’s THE BEST MAN will begin rehearsals on Monday, January 30, 2012, with the first preview performance on Tuesday, March 6, 2012. An official opening is set for Sunday, April 1, 2012, at a Shubert Theatre to be announced.

A play about power, ambition, political secrets, ruthlessness and the race for the presidency, Gore Vidal’s THE BEST MAN was Vidal’s second play following the success of his international comedy hit, Visit to a Small Planet. Gore Vidal’s THE BEST MAN will make its return to Broadway in its first major revival since its critically acclaimed run in 2000 which received a Tony Award nomination and won a Drama Desk Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Play Revival. Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, and Darren Bagert (Infinity Stages), the producers of that production, will be reuniting to present the work in the Spring of 2012.
