Tony Award winner Stephen Spinella, Tony nominee Tovah Feldshuh and Alvin Epstein head the cast of the Red Bull Theater revival of Ben Jonson's Volpone, or The Fox, which begins previews Off-Broadway Nov. 27 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.



Jesse Berger helms the production that is set to open Dec. 9 for a run through Dec. 23. Tracy Bersley is the choreographer.

Spinella (Angels in America), Feldshuh (Golda's Balcony) and Epstein (The Cherry Orchard) are joined by Jen Eden, Cameron Folmar (The 39 Steps), Michael Mastro (Love! Valour! Compassion!), Sean Patrick Doyle (La Cage Aux Folles), Christina Pumariega (Seminar), Pearl Rhein (The Red Letterbox), Rocco Sisto (Quills), Alexander Sovronsky (Cyrano de Bergerac), Teale Sperling (Christmas Spectacular), Raphael Nash Thompson (The Witch of Edmonton) and Gregory Wooddell (The Lyons).

Volpone has set design by John Arnone, costume design by Clint Ramos, lighting design by Peter West and original music by Scott Killian.

According to Red Bull, "Meet Volpone, the rich old Magnifico, whose ingenious schemes and farcical scams dupe his wealthy friends into showering him with gold. This Jacobean juggler robs the rich to feed the richer. Considered one of the greatest comedies ever written for the stage, Jonson's merciless satire of greed and lust delightfully skewers the vanities and hypocrisies of humanity with irreverent comic relish. A feast of extraordinary language and outrageous characters await you in this timeless and timely classic from the pen of Shakespeare's greatest peer."

Tickets are available by visiting RedBullTheater or by calling (212) 352-3101.
