'Private Practice' star to appear in Belber play
Kate Walsh will topline Off Broadway play “Dusk Rings a Bell” in an Atlantic Theater Company production opening in May. Walsh (“Private Practice”) will appear opposite Paul Sparks (recently on Broadway in “Hedda Gabler”) in playwright Stephen Belber’s latest, which follows a pair of former lovers whose reunion after 25 years is complicated by the revelation of a past crime. Sam Gold (“Circle Mirror Transformation”) directs. Walsh’s previous stage credits include productions in Chicago (“Born Guilty,” “Happy Birthday, Wanda June”), L.A. (“Orlando”) and Gotham (“The Four Twins” at the Ontological). “Dusk” begins previews May 19 ahead of a May 27 opening at the Atlantic Stage 2.
