The Geffen Playhouse
It’s amazing. It’s like Exorcist-a-mania lately. With a TV miniseries and several other unrelated demonic possession flicks and TV shows on their way, the devil is once again at the top of his game. Read on for the latest on The Exorcist stage play!
From the Press Release:
In addition to an accomplished cast, the Geffen Playhouse’s world premiere stage adaptation of The Exorcist showcases an award-winning design team – including world-renowned creative consultant Teller and internationally acclaimed spiritual composer Sir John Tavener – to bring playwright John Pielmeier’s script and Tony Award winning director John Doyle’s vision to life on stage. The team also includes Tony Award winning scenic/costume designer Scott Pask, lighting designer Jane Cox and sound designer Dan Moses Schreir. Working with Doyle, the design team will be tasked with creating a theatrical experience that engages the senses in a way that is unique to live performance.
As the designers create ambiance and atmosphere, the actors taking center stage include Brooke Shields and Richard Chamberlain in the iconic roles of Chris MacNeil and Father Merrin, respectively, as well as Broadway actor David Wilson Barnes as the troubled young priest Father Damien Karras. Tony Award nominee Harry Groener takes on the role of Chris’ charismatic director Burke Dennings, and UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television graduate Emily Yetter plays the young Regan MacNeil. The world premiere cast also includes Stephen Bogardus, Manoel Felciano, Tom Nelis, and Roslyn Ruff. The Exorcist opens in the Gil Cates Theater at the Geffen Playhouse on July 11, 2012, and runs through August 12, 2012.
