Mariette Hartley will replace the injured Mary Tyler Moore in the Williamstown Theater Festival’s production of A.R. Gurney’s new play “Buffalo Gal” this summer.
Moore has withdrawn from the season-opener on the fest’s smaller Nikos Stage due to a foot injury complicated by her diabetes.
In addition, the Paddy Chayefsky play “The Latent Heterosexual” has been replaced by a revival of Willy Russell’s comedy “Educating Rita.” Edward Herrmann will star in the production directed by Bruce Paltrow.
Williamstown producer Michael Ritchie cited “scheduling conflicts” as the cause of the latter switch.
