The pre-Broadway engagement of Tea at Five, starring Academy Award winner Faye Dunaway as Katharine Hepburn, opens June 28 at the Huntington Avenue Theatre. Performances run through July 14 at the Boston venue.
John Tillinger, who helmed the original Kate Mulgrew-led production in 2002, directs the limited engagement of Matthew Lombardo’s solo show. Details on a subsequent Broadway bow will be announced later.
The production features sets by Scott Pask, lighting by Kevin Adams, costumes by Jane Greenwood, sound design by John Gromada, projections by Aaron Rhyne, and wig design by Tom Watson.
The new presentation, produced by Ben Feldman and Scott Beck, streamlines the two-act format into 90 minutes and focuses primarily on Hepburn in 1983 as she recovers from her car accident injury and looks back on her famed romance with Spencer Tracy.
