I had never met a playwright who has a single property that will be running simultaneously in 2 major theater cities. It might be a first. I will have to check, but on the great white way, only Neil Simon in 1966 is the only living playwright that had four shows playing in Broadway theaters at the same time: Sweet Charity, The Star-Spangled Girl, The Odd Couple and Barefoot in the Park.
The Gentleman Caller also takes a non traditional casting route to tell the story of 2 famous playwrights, Tennessee Williams and William Inge, at a very different time in their careers. In the Chicago production: Rudy Galvan as Tennessee Williams
and Curtis Edward Jackson as William Inge, and for the NY production, Daniel K. Isaac and Juan Francisco Villa in the same roles respectively. This is a great time to be Philip Dawkins. Please click HERE and enjoy my conversation with him.
