Athol Fugard and The Road to Mecca
South African playwright Athol Fugard is having quite the year on New York stages this year. No less than four productions of his plays are planned to arrive in the city this year, the highest profile of which is the Roundabout Theater Company's Broadway production of The Road to Mecca. The production stars Jim Dale, Rosemary Harris and Carla Gugino, and opens on January 17th. In anticipation of the show's opening, playbill.com has written a fascinating profile and history of the piece and its performers at the link below and I wanted to share it with you. Enjoy!
