WTF: Lauren Ambrose and Chris Pine Are Out; Nina Arianda and Sam Rockwell Now in “Fool for Love” [Berkshire on Stage]
Citing scheduling conflicts for the originally scheduled actors Chris Pine and Lauren Ambrose, the Williamstown Theatre Festival (WTF) has announced that Tony Award-winner Nina Arianda and stage and screen star Sam Rockwell will join the cast of Sam Shepard’s Fool for Love, playing the Nikos Stage from July 24–August 2, 2014. The two originally cast in-demand actors have departed the production due to scheduling conflicts.
“While we were greatly looking forward to welcoming Chris Pine back to Williamstown, Sam Rockwell and I have long included Fool for Love at the top of our wish list for a production on the Nikos Stage, and we are thrilled that Sam is available to return to Williamstown. He has a long history of recreating extraordinary roles by great American writers here. We are further blessed by the red-hot Nina Arianda, a formidable actor and great foil as May to Sam’s Eddie.” – Jenny Gersten, Artistic Director Emeritus
