‘Golden Age’ keeps Pace

Actor to star in McNally play Off Broadway

Lee Pace will topline Manhattan Theater Club’s Off Broadway production of Terrence McNally play “Golden Age,” with Eddie Kaye Thomas and Richard Easton also among the cast.

Pace (“The Normal Heart”), whose screen credits include “Pushing Daisies” as well as gigs in upcoming pics “The Hobbit” and “Lincoln,” will play Italian composer Vincenzo Bellini in the show, which centers on the backstage drama of the 1835 premiere of Bellini’s opera “I Puritani” in Paris. The previously announced Bebe Neuwirth and Deirdre Friel portray dueling divas, while Lorenzo Pisoni is on board as a well-known baritone and Easton is set to play composer Gioachino Rossini. Will Rogers, Ethan Phillips and Coco Monroe also appear in the show.

Walter Bobbie (“Chicago,” “Venus in Fur”), who directed the play at the Kennedy Center in 2010, helms the MTC incarnation. Production is part of a 2012-13 season slate that also includes an “An Enemy of the People,” now playing at MTC’s Broadway venue.

“Golden Age” begins previews Nov. 13 ahead of a Dec. 4 opening at City Center.
