The roar of the 'Lion' THEATER

October 08, 1998|By J. Wynn Rousuck

"The Lion in Winter," James Goldman's play about the feuding family of Henry II, opens the season at Everyman Theatre tomorrow. Co-produced by Silver Spring's Round House Theatre, the production is itself a family drama since it stars Baltimore actress Tana Hicken as Eleanor of Aquitaine and is directed by her husband, Donald Hicken, head of the theater department at the Baltimore School for the Arts.

Co-starring with Hicken, who spent 15 years as a company member at Washington's Arena stage, is Jerry Whiddon, producing artistic director of Round House, where the production will move on Nov. 11. Kyle Prue, Drew Kahl and Dwayne Nitz portray Henry and Eleanor's three sons.

Shows at Everyman, 1727 N. Charles St., are 8 p.m. Wednesdays-Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays, through Nov. 1. Tickets are $12-$15, except for a pay-what-you-can preview tonight and tomorrow's opening, which is $25 and includes a reception with the cast. Call 410-752-2208.
