Dinklage, Brooks set for Williamstown

Bradley Cooper drops out of theater festival

Peter Dinklage, Annie Parisse and Brooks Ashmanskas are among the thesps that have been added to the lineup at the Williamstown Theater Fest in Williamstown, Mass., while previously announced Bradley Cooper is no longer on the list.

Cooper had been slated to star in a July production of “True West,” appearing as a replacement for the initially announced Rob Corddry. Withdrawal has been attributed to “personal reasons.” No replacement thesp for Cooper has yet been nailed down.

Dinklage, Parisse (“Becky Shaw”) and Ashmanskas (“Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me”) join Bob Dishy, Rightor Doyle, Susan Pourfar and Reg Rogers in “Knickerbocker,” a new play by Jonathan Marc Sherman about a man grappling with impending fatherhood.

Helmed by Nicholas Martin (“Why Torture Is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them”), “Knickerbocker” runs July 8-19.
