ONE WEEKEND ONLY Theater Voices will present the final staged reading presentation of its twenty-fifth season celebration, a new production of its inaugural show, THE LITTLE FOXES by Lillian Hellman, directed by David Baecker. Performances will take place at Steamer No. 10 Theatre, 500 Western Avenue (corner of West Lawrence), Albany, NY on Friday May 17 at 8:00pm; Saturday May 18 at 3:00pm and 8:00pm and Sunday May 19 at 3:00pm. House opens half hour before curtain.
Hellman’s 1939 drama, which originally starred Tallulah Bankhead, portrays the Hubbard family—exemplified by the glamorous but ruthless Regina—and their attempts to become wealthy, even at one another’s expense. The script reflects the playwright’s longstanding concern with the corrosive effect of power and money on individual lives, as well as her dissatisfaction with the American capitalist system.
The original Theater Voices production of The Little Foxes was presented in March of 1989, directed by the late Jarka Burian. David Baecker, who is an Associate Professor of Theatre at Russell Sage College, will direct this new staging.
