Going from playing Jesus Christ to a defrocked minister with a Christ fixation, Garret Dillahunt will play the Rev. Shannon in Tennessee Williams’ “The Night of the Iguana” at the Berkshire Theater Festival Aug. 1-12 in the Massachusetts Berkshires.
Dillahunt, who co-stars alongside Linda Hamilton (“The Terminator,” TV’s “Beauty and the Beast”), played the holy prophet in TV’s axed “The Book of Daniel.” Other credits include HBO’s “Deadwood,” which stars “Iguana” castmate Robin Weigert.
Anders Cato will helm the production. Also cast are Aya Cash, Sam Kitchin, Charlotte Maier and Bill Swan.
