The Underpants Cast and Creative Announcement
The Old Globe today announced the cast and creative team of a sparkling comedy rounding in our summer season, The Underpants, by the Globe’s second-most-popular playwright-in-residence, Steve Martin. Directed by multiple-award winner Walter Bobbie (Globe and Broadway’s Bright Star, Broadway’s Venus in Fur, Chicago) and adapted from Die Hose by Carl Sternheim, the play was originally commissioned by Erna Finci Viterbi Artistic Director Barry Edelstein when he ran New York’s Classic Stage Company.
The Old Globe is honored to receive five California Arts Council grants for the work it is doing to make theatre matter to more people, to both support existing programs and expand into new areas. The grant awards to the Globe total $91,855 for the period of July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.
