Conviction at Bay Street Theatre

Bay Street TheatreGarret has joined the cast of Carey Crim’s Conviction, along with Sarah Paulson, Elizabeth Reaser, Brian Hutchinson, and Daniel Burns.

The play will have its world premiere at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor (NY) next month as part of the 2014 Mainstage Season. Scott Schwartz is directing.

Here is what Broadway World is reporting:

CONVICTION tells the story of the family of Tom Hodges, a charismatic, confident and caring teacher that students adore and parents admire. The smart, wise-cracking colleague with all the answers. The neighbor who takes care of the neighborhood. The perfect husband and father. But when a student accuses Tom of crossing a line, everything changes. This delicately balanced, beautifully nuanced new family drama digs deep beneath the surface of a happy suburban existence to explore the damage done when seeds of mistrust are planted. It asks the question — How can we live with conviction when some questions cannot be answered?

The cast includes Garret Dillahunt (“Raising Hope,” “12 Years a Slave”) as Tom; Sarah Paulson (“American Horror Story,” “12 Years a Slave”) as his wife Leigh; Elizabeth Reaser (“Twilight” films, Second Stage’s revival of “How I Learned to Drive”) as their friend Jayne; Brian Hutchinson (“Man and Boy,” “Looped”) as her husband Bruce; and Daniel Burns (“Twelfth Night”, “Shipwrecked!”) as Tom and Leigh’s son Nicholas.

The play runs from May 27 to June 15. You can find the performance calendar here.

Single tickets will go on sale on May 15, and three-play subscriptions for the 2014 Mainstage Season are already available at baystreet.org.

Interview with the Deadwood cast

Garret Dillahunt and William Sanderson in DeadwoodIt’s been 10 years since Deadwood premiered (March 21, 2004) and Yahoo TV has a new interview with most of the main cast.

You can read it here.

Here is a nice little snippet:

Garret Dillahunt: When you get something like that, you just want to focus. Everybody comes to work focused. People hung out at “Deadwood.” People came to work when they weren’t called. You just wanted to be there because something special was happening. What made it special might have killed it, ultimately. I don’t know. I would be guessing. We took 21 days to finish an episode one time. No network can stomach that. We made sure it was right. The crew was like Spartan f–king warriors slogging through red mud with all this equipment. I’m sure [everyone] could have made more money on a network show or something, but everyone was proud. They were really proud of what they were doing. I felt in such good hands and in good company there. When there’s this mix of people who are like-minded in their goal, something spectacular happens.
