Patrick Stewart, Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard have joined the cast of Stephen Belber’s “Match” at Tilted Windmill Productions.
Based on Belber’s 2004 Tony-nominated Broadway play of the same title, the story centers on Tobi (Stewart), a reclusive and eccentric Julliard dance instructor and choreographer.
He is visited by a Seattle couple, Lisa and Mike (Gugino and Lillard) under the pretense of being interviewed for Lisa’s thesis on the New York dance movement in the sixties.
However, as the couple’s true intentions are revealed, Tobi is forced to face the impact of decisions he made long ago.
Belber penned and directed 2008’s Jennifer Aniston comedy “Management,” and wrote the plays “Tape” and “The Laramie Project” which have been adapted into features.
David Permut, Rick Rosenthal and Matt Ratner will produce, and filming is currently underway in New York City.
