PAW presents Eugene O“Neill’s, “A Moon for the Misbegotten”

by Adele Jones

Performing Arts of Woodstock presents Eugene O“Neill’s masterpiece, “A Moon for the Misbegotten.” Unproduced in his lifetime, this is the first production of O’Neill’s lyrical, beautiful play in the Hudson Valley, telling the story of O“Neill’s doomed elder brother Jamie and his attempts to redeem himself in the arms of Josie Hogan who is trying to hold on to the family farm.

There have been a few Broadway revivals of “Moon” in recent years, notably with Cherry Jones as Josie, but the iconic production in 1973 starred Colleen Dewhurst and Jason Robards.


PAW’s production stars Kimberly Kay as Josie, Richard Scofield as her father, Phil Hogan, Justin Lazard as Jamie Tyrone and features Bob Sheridan as the rich next door neighbor, T. Steadman Harder. It is directed by Nicola Sheara, well-​​known as both director and actor, and founder of the Reader’s Theater, Theater Sounds.
