AA's APS on B'way first

Absurd Person Singular, Alan Ayckbourn's 1973 comedy "about three couples, three kitchens and three successive Christmas Eves," has been in previews on Broadway since Thursday and opens officially on Oct. 18.

Spokane will have to wait until Nov. 25, when Actor's Rep will open its production (slated to run until Dec. 10; directed by Chad Henry).

The Biltmore Theater production in New York will feature Mireille Enos (Honey in last season's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? in NYC), Clea Lewis, Sam Robards (the son of Lauren Bacall and Jason Robards Jr.), Alan Ruck, Deborah Rush and Paxton Whitehead ("Claudia Jean, you are a freakishly tall woman" on The West Wing).


  1. Any skinny on the cast list?

  2. Yes -- see the Aug. 23 post for director and four of the six actors.
    The third man will be an actor I cannot name as yet, but he was in Camping with Henry and Tom at Interplayers nine years ago.
    The third woman -- I don't know.

  3. See Playbill's the end of Playbill's interview with Sam Robards, "Sam I Am," Oct. 7, on the fast pace and "dark underbelly" of this play.
