Tresnjak said, “I read Cornell Woolrich’s classic crime story ‘Rear Window’ in high school, and it made a lasting impression. I’m thrilled to have an opportunity to direct a stage version thirty years later, when the issues of surveillance and voyeurism have become even more pertinent. Keith Reddin’s taut adaptation takes place inside of a sweltering, claustrophobic apartment, very much like the addled brain of the leading character, who will be played by Kevin Bacon. I can’t imagine finer collaborators than Kevin and Keith in exploring the terrifying psychological landscape of this timeless thriller.”

Kevin Bacon is a Golden Globe Award winner and Emmy Award nominee, whose films include A Few Good Men, Apollo 13, Footloose, Murder in the First, JFK, The Woodsman, X-Men: First Class, Sleepers and The River Wild. His theatre credits include Forty Deuce (OBIE Award), Spike Heels, and the Broadway productions of Slab Boys and An Almost Holy Picture.
