‘Cymbeline’ crowns Goodman queen

Actress grabs lead in Shakespeare Festival prod'n

NEW YORK — Hazelle Goodman has signed on to play the role of the queen in The New York Shakespeare Festival’s production of “Cymbeline.”

Goodman most recently appeared in the Woody Allen pic “Deconstructing Harry,” and also starred in “Heat” with Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro. “Cymbeline” will bow on August 4 and will run through August 30. Additional casting is expected to be completed on Monday.

The legiter centers on the King Cymbeline and his queen’s plans to marry stepdaughter Imogen off to Cloten, the buffoonish son of the king. Of course, this being Shakepeare, deception and mayhem ensues.

The production is the second in the series of Shakespeare in the Park, produced by George C. Wolfe at the Public Theater. Andrei Serban is attached to helm. The sets are designed by Mark Wendland, with costumes by Marina Draghici.

Goodman is represented by Bill Butler and Lorrie Barlett of the Gersh Agency, and managed by Jason Weinberg of Jason Weinberg and Associates.
