Mark being introduced by Hartford Stage Artistic Director Darko Tresnjak.

"I'm so flattered to be asked back. It's so generous of Darko and [HS Managing Director] Mike Stotts to have me back here after all these years. And it's a particular thrill for me to come back when the theater is being led by Darko. I admire him so much and I'm so proud that the theater is in such good hands. It's also a thrill to have this glorious cast of four to bring the show together. It is, as Darko says, an important play. It's amazing that that play still lives, still resonates, in fact, in funny a way perhaps resonates more today than in the 1960s. Now I think the play can say what it really means to say. It also moves Coward's image to something very deep and very personal. It's a thrill to be able to do it."
