WILLIAMSTOWN - Let the ..., 11 Feb 2015 [cached]
WILLIAMSTOWN - Let the adventure begin, says Williamstown Theatre Festival's new artistic director, Mandy Greenfield.
For her debut as the artistic leader of the Tony Award-winning summer-producing regional theater, Greenfield has put together a 2015 Main Stage/Nikos Stage season comprising an American classic, four world premieres, three American premieres and appearances by Kyra Sedgwick, Audra McDonald, Cynthia Nixon, Eric Bogosian and Jessica Hecht.
Speaking by telephone on Tuesday from the festival's New York office, Greenfield said she wanted to pick "the best plays that speak to this moment.
The play was given to Greenfield by the William Inge estate in 2008, during discussions about bringing a Los Angeles Theater Center revival of Inge's "Come Back, Little Sheba" with S. Epatha Merkerson to the Manhattan Theatre Club, where Greefield was artistic producer until officially succeeding Jenny Gersten as Williamstown's artistic director in September 2104.

According to Greenfield, Inge wrote "Off the Main Road" as a play and then converted it almost immediately to a teleplay entitled "On the Outskirts of Town," which was aired live in 1964 on Bob Hope's Chrysler Theatre and has not been seen since.
Greenfield says she thought of Sedgwick right away for the leading role.
"I dream big," she said.
"I am as much a fan of Audra as we are colleagues," Greenfield said.
Goldstein, Friedman and director Trip Cullman have all grown up in the festival, Greenfield said.
But since "An Intervention" will be performed by two separate casts, the festival, Greenfield said, will make special ticket arrangements for those interested in seeing both pairs of actors.
Greenfield says she will announce additional programming and casting at a future date. For now, she says, "I'm excited for the adventure.

WILLIAMSTOWN -- Mandy ..., 5 Dec 2013 [cached]
WILLIAMSTOWN -- Mandy Greenfield, artistic producer of the nonprofit Manhattan Theatre Club in New York, will succeed Jenny Ger sten as artistic director of Williams town Theatre Festival.
As artistic producer, Greenfield, who has been with MTC since 2003, leads programming at City Center and collaborates with MTC executive director Lynne Meadow on programming at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
Speaking by telephone from New York, the 39-year-old Greenfield said she was approached by the WTF search committee.
"(Williamstown Theatre Festival) is a place for which I have had enormous respect and admiration," Greenfield said. "This is a hugely appealing, flattering, exciting opportunity. I took the bait."
"We've known Mandy for years," WTF board Chairman Matthew Harris said in an email interview.
Harris said Greenfield was uniquely qualified for Will iams town where the artistic director functions as chief executive, unlike many theaters that have both an artistic director and a managing director, each of whom reports to the board.
"At MTC, (Mandy) was active across the entire spectrum of artistic duties, from commissioning straight through to thinking about how best to market her productions, and everything in between.
"Before MTC, she ran her own theater company (Blue Light Theatre Company in New York), and similarly had 'soup to nuts' responsibility. So the first, most rare and most important quality she brings is this combination of artistic and executive talent, whereby she can be a fully featured leader of our organization."
Greenfield sees WTF as a "community of artists in a community of culturally savvy and astute people.
"I love writers," she said. "I love living writers taking big risks and sometimes failing, sometimes succeeding (and understanding that) it's okay if they don't.
"I'm after work that engages the audience; that involves the audience in process. I want the audience to connect."
Greenfield is a member of the Broadway League and serves on the advisory board of the Drama League. She is a magna cum laude graduate of Yale University and lives in New York with her husband, who works in finance, and their two children, ages 5 and 3.
"Everyone I've spoken to who has worked at Williams town talks of that place as a setting that feeds their artistic soul; an artistically pure place in which things can happen; where they can do the kind of work they cannot do elsewhere," Greenfield said.
