Primary Stages (Casey Childs, Founder & Executive Producer; Andrew Leynse, Artistic Director; Elliot Fox, Managing Director) continues their celebration of the Foote family legacy with the world premiere of HIM by Daisy Foote. This production, the second of Primary Stages' 28th season, opens Tuesday, October 9 and features Tony Award nominee HAllie Foote (Harrison, TX…, Dividing the Estate) Tim Hopper (Present Laughter, The Dying Gaul, Steppenwolf), Adam LeFevre (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, The Doctor's Dilemma), and ADINA VERSON (The Winter's Tale at Yale Rep). Helmed by Obie Award-winning director Evan Yionoulis (Three Days of Rain, Violet Hour), HIM runs through October 28 at Primary Stages at 59E59 Theaters.
In the tradition of great American plays, Daisy Foote explores the institution of the American family in HIM. Two siblings struggling to keep the family store afloat must decide which is a priority: their father's final wishes or their financial stability. It's a choice that could tear them apart.
HIM is the second production in the Primary Stages celebration of the Foote family legacy, following HARRISON, TX: Three Plays by Horton Foote. The production, which also featured HAllie Foote, completed its run at Primary Stages at 59E59 Theaters September 15.
HIM features a scenic design by Marion Williams, costume design by Teresa Snider-Stein, lighting design by Tyler Micoleau, and original music and sound design by Broken Chord.
