Oliver Platt, known to "West Wing" fans as Counselor Oliver Babish, will be starring in "Shining City" starting in spring 2006. From Playbill.com:
"Originally produced at London’s Royal Court Theater, Conor McPherson's Shining City "focuses on John (Oliver Platt), a guilt-ridden man who visits a therapist after seeing the ghost of his recently deceased wife. What starts out as an everyday exchange becomes a gripping struggle to survive — a struggle that will change both men for the rest of their lives."
McPherson had a Broadway and London sensation with his The Weir.
Tony Award winner Robert Falls (Long Day's Journey Into Night) will direct the Broadway staging at the Biltmore Theatre. Previews begin April 13, 2006, toward a May 3 opening."
