Premiere at Bay Street

Ana Reeder, Richard Short, Katherine Helmond, Rosie Benton

Lonnie Price has directed the American Premiere of "The Night Season," a new play by the gifted Rebecca Lenkiewicz that opened May 16 at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor. Price, who helmed the current revival of "110 In the Shade" for Roundabout Theater at Studio 54, has assembled a magnificent cast headed by Katherine Helmond as an eccentric grandmother, who sings show tunes. The charming story that takes us to Sligo, Ireland, the idyllic home of William Butler Yeats, where a charismatic movie star lodges with three fiesty sisters and their family while shooting a film about the poet's life. Helmond won a Golden Globe for her outrageous portrayal of Jessica Tate in ABC's ground breaking sitcom "Soap" in the late 1970's, but she is probably best known to the world as Mona from television's "Who's the Boss?" with Tony Danza. The remaining cast in the winning production of the bittersweet tale includes Rosie Benton, David Patrick Kelly, Michael O'Keefe, Kellie Overbey, Ana Reeder and Richard Short. "The Night Season" was a resounding success in 2004 at the National Theatre's Cottesloe stage in London and will run through July 1 at Bay Street Theatre. For tickets and more information call 631- 725-9500. Photography: Barry Gordin
