Williamstown adds Thompson, Martin

Theater company to debut new play

Lea Thompson, Richard Thomas and Andrea Martin have been added to the list of thesps on tap at the Williamstown Theater Festival in Massachusetts.

Thompson (“Caroline in the City”) will star with Matt McGrath, Brenda Wehle and Will Lebow in “Caroline in Jersey” (Aug. 5-16). The new play by Melinda Lopez (“Sonia Flew”), helmed by Amanda Charlton, follows a down-and-out actress living in the Garden State.

Thomas will star in a one-night-only presentation of solo show “Blanche and Beyond,” director-adaptor Steve Lawson’s play based on the letters of Tennessee Williams. Perf is set for Aug. 2.

Martin (“Young Frankenstein”), meanwhile, has joined the cast of backstage comedy “The Torch-Bearers,” adapted and helmed by Dylan Baker. She replaces Dana Ivey (who recently suffered a knee injury, according to reps for WTF) in the show, which runs July 29-Aug. 9.
