Rebecca Gilman’s Dollhouse opens at the Guthrie Theater

REBECCA GILMAN’S DOLLHOUSE opens at the Guthrie Theater

 

“Playwright Rebecca Gilman deftly freshens Ibsen’s brilliant treatise on social values”- Graydon Royce, Star Tribune

 

(Minneapolis/St.Paul) Award-winning playwright Rebecca Gilman (Spinning Into Butter, The Glory of Living) bold and insightful update of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House opened at the Guthrie Theater last week to critical acclaim. Wendy C. Goldberg, artistic director of the National Playwrights Conference at The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, directs the production, which features Sarah Agnew in the role of Nora. Performances continue through July 11, 2010 on the McGuire Proscenium Stage at the Guthrie Theater.

WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING …

“Gilman’s adaptation retains Ibsen’s power to force us to reflect on ourselves. The timeless beauty of A Doll’s House never felt so timely”
— Graydon Royce, Star Tribune
 
A “grand show” … “the Guthrie has assembled a first-rate cast”
— John Olive, HowWasTheShow.com

Dollhouse is a disturbing, but funny show … It’s a trap laid out clearly in the Guthrie Theater’s intriguing production”
— Ed Huyck, MinnPost.com

About Rebecca Gilman’s Dollhouse
Nora seems to have it all: a successful husband, three adorable children and a beautiful home in Lincoln Park. But what looks like the perfect life is woefully incomplete, propped up by dark secrets and bitter betrayals. From Ibsen’s masterpiece A Doll’s House, award-winning playwright Rebecca Gilman (Spinning Into Butter, The Glory of Living) crafts a bold and insightful update that’s been called “savvy, droll and deliciously caustic” by Variety. This contemporary adaptation brings Ibsen’s classic into our century with a sharp eye for social satire and moments of dark comedy coupled with powerful human drama.
 
The cast includes Sarah Agnew (Nora), Alexander Cecena (Max), Oralia Cecena (Skyler), Piper Gallivan (Macey), Matt Guidry (Pete), Peter Christian Hansen (Terry), George A. Keller (Marta), Norah Long (Kristine), Emily Marceau (Macey), Nora Montanez (Iris), Bhavesh Patel (Raj Patel), Alaina Lucy Rivera (Skyler) and Zel Weilandgruber (Max).
 
The creative team for the show includes Alexander Dodge (Scenic Design), Anne Kennedy (Costume Design), Josh Epstein (Lighting Design), Elisa Carlson (Voice and Dialect Coach), Marcela Lorca (Movement), Carla Steen (Dramaturg), Michele Harms (Stage Manager), Justin Hossle (Assistant Stage Manager) and Ellen Fenster (Assistant Director).

Dollhouse continues through July 11 on the McGuire Proscenium Stage at the Guthrie Theater. Single tickets are priced from $29. Tickets are now on sale through the Guthrie Box Office at 612.377.2224, toll-free 877.44.STAGE and online at www.guthrietheater.org.
