Gale Joins "Suddenly Last Summer" Cast

Gale Harold, star of the new drama series "Vanished", and best known for his role as sexy manwhore Brian Kinney on Queer As Folk, has joined the off-Broadway cast of Tennessee Williams' "Suddenly Last Summer". Joining Blythe Danner and Carla Gugino, Gale will fill the role of Dr. Cukrowicz, the young neurosurgeon hired by the wealthy Violet Venable (Danner) to lobotamize the awful truth about her sons tragic demise from her troubled niece's mind in order to save his reputation.

Other cast members added include, Becky Ann Baker (Mrs. Holly), Sandra Shiply (Sister Felicity), Karen Walsh (Mrs. Foxhill), and Wayne Wilcox (George Holly). Opening night for this play is November 15th.

The 1960 film version of this brilliant play, starring Katherine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Montgomery Clift, is one of my favorite films of all time. The dialogue is absolutely genius. I am greatly looking forward to this being one of the theatre pieces I see when I go to New York in December.
