Photos by:  Rob Rich/ © 2012



Gore Vidal’s The Best Man opened April 1 at Broadway’s Schoenfeld Theatre. Directed by Michael Wilson, the production will play a limited engagement through July 8. The Best Man features an all star cast: Tony winner John Larroquette, Eric McCormack, two-time Tony winner James Earl Jones, five-time Tony winner Angela Lansbury, Candice Bergen, Tony nominee Kerry Butler, Michael McKeon and Tony winner Jefferson Mays.


A political drama set at the national convention in Philadelphia, The Best Man tells the story of Secretary William Russell (Larroquette) and Senator Joseph Cantwell (McCormack), two presidential hopefuls both trying to earn their party’s nomination. When Cantwell smears Russell’s reputation with an allegation about his mental health, Russell must decide whether to play fair or fight back. The story is as relevant today as it was when is was first produced in 1960.

The Best Man also features Donna Hanover, and Angelica Page. The Best Man design team includes scenic designer Derek McLane, lighting designer Kenneth Posner, music and sound designer John Gromada and costume designer Ann Roth.


In attendance for the opening: Matthew Modine, Joan Rivers, Debra Messing, F. Murray Abraham, Topher Grace, Ellen Burstyn, Norm Lewis, Edward Albee, Phil Donahue, Gina Gershon, David Henry Hwang, Stacy Keach, Mayor Ed Koch, Rob Morrow, Frances Sternhagen, Leah Lane, Marlo Thomas, Alex Timbers, Tony LoBianco, Diana Feldman, and producers: Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Darren Bagert, Stewart F. Lane, Bonnie Comley, and Barbara Manocherian among others.
