Join us the weekend of May 31-June 2 for Maxim Vinogradov's A NIGHT OF STARS WITH TENNESSEE WILLIAMS in Bellevue Hill Park!
Go on a tour of the galaxy with one of the greatest playwrights of all time: Tennessee Williams. Join him as he navigates the stars of the night sky and memories with the stars he worked with throughout his career. Meet Marlon Brando as Tennessee did. Meet Bette Davis backstage at The Night of the Iguana. Go one one of Tennessee's many adventures with Truman Capote. Or meet Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Katherine Hepburn, and Greta Garbo at their most outrageous, their most desperate, and their most human, as Tennessee struggles to make sense of the alcohol-soaked mess that made up his life, his career, and his relationships. From the Regular Theatre, in partnership with Wilde Award-winning playwright Maxim Vinogradov, comes the regional premiere of this Hopwood Award-winning play about the folly of fame, elusiveness of memory, and the people that make life worth remembering.
