Robards will star in new play added to Mechanic season

July 17, 1991

THE BALTIMORE Center for the Performing Arts has added a pre-Broadway tryout and a musical revival to the 1991-92 subscription season.

Israel Horovitz's new play, "Park Your Car in Harvard Yard," will open Oct. 1 and play through Oct. 27 at the Morris A. Mechanic Theatre prior to its Broadway engagement. The two-person

play will star Jason Robards and Judith Ivey. Zoe Caldwell is directing the play, billed as touchingly funny.

Set in Gloucester, Mass., the story focuses on the relationship between a retired high school music appreciation and English literature teacher (Robards) and his under-educated Irish housekeeper (Ivey). Robards last played the Mechanic

in "A Touch of the Poet." Ivey was last seen there in the revival of "Blithe Spirit."

The award-winning musical ''A Chorus Line'' also has been added to the theater season. Playing here for the fifth time, the Michael Bennett musical will be presented from Nov. 26 through Dec. 8 at the Lyric Opera House. "A Chorus Line" will

be directed and choreographed by Baayork Lee, who originated the role of Connie in the Broadway version.

Tickets for "Park Your Car in Harvard Yard" and "A Chorus Line" will go on sale Sept. 3. For further information, call the Baltimore Center for the Performing Arts, 625-4200.
