We’re thrilled to reveal the cast for the World Premiere production of North by Northwest, led by multi-award winning Director Simon Phillips.
- Taking the lead role of man-on-the-run Roger O. Thornhill, we welcome Matt Day back to MTC following his performance in 2009’s Scarlett O’Hara At the Crimson Parrot.
- Playing the sassy Eve Kendall and making her MTC debut is Amber McMahon, who recently appeared in Windmill Theatre’s School Dance and Belvoir’s Angels in America.
- Bringing the laughs as Roger’s meddling mother is MTC veteran Deidre Rubenstein (His Girl Friday), while scheming henchman Vandamm will be played by Matt Hetherington (Next to Normal).
- And taking on a host of other roles in this production are the wonderful Nicholas Bell (The Speechmaker), Ian Bliss (Hamlet), Justin Stewart Cotta (Glengarry Glen Ross) Sheridan Harbridge (The Speechmaker), John Leary (Private Lives), Tony Llewellyn-Jones (Realism), Lucas Stibbard (Boy Girl Wall) and Lachlan Woods (Hamlet).
