RENOWNED BROADWAY PRODUCING TEAM HAD ‘CYRANO DE BERGERAC’, ‘THE 39 STEPS’ AND ‘SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE’ THIS THEATER SEASON

 

Producing team Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley brought us three Broadway hits this theater season. Cyrano De Bergerac, The 39 Steps and Sunday in the Park with George have all been nominated for Tony awards and Drama Desk Awards with The 39 Steps and Sunday in the Park with George both winning both Tony’s and Drama Desk Awards.

 Alfred Hitchcock's, The 39 Steps, was recreated as a comedy that  follows the adventures of the hero Richard Hannay, as he encounters immoral murders, double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, astonishingly beautiful women. It features four fearless actors, playing 139 roles in 100 minutes of exciting action. The 39 Steps won the 2008 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience and Outstanding Lighting Design (Kevin Adams). It was nominated for one other Drama Desk Award, Outstanding Sound Design (Mic Pool).  It won two Tony Awards on June 15 2008 for Best Lighting Design and Best Sound Design and was nominated for four other Tonys.

 Sunday in the Park with George is a classic musical inspired by the painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat. A complex work revolving around a fictionalized Seurat immersed in single-minded concentration while painting the masterpiece. The Broadway production won the 2008 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Orchestrations (Jason Carr) and Outstanding Projection and Video Design (Timothy Bird and The Knifedge Creative Network). Sunday in the Park with George was nominated for five other Drama Desk awards and for nine Tonys.

 Their last show, Cyrano de Bergerac, has been described as "the soulful poet/philosopher and brilliant swordsman Cyrano, a cadet in the French Army, who falls for the beautiful, strong-willed Roxane, but is too ashamed of his large nose to tell her. The casting of two dedicated and beloved actors in Kevin Kline and Jennifer Garner garnered excellent reviews and sold-out audiences during this limited run. Cyrano de Bergerac was nominated the 2008 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actor in a Play (Kevin Kline) and was nominated in the 2008 Tony Awards for Best Costume Design of a Play (Gregory Gale).
