NIGHTS IN RODANTHE

GEORGE C. WOLFE (Director) makes his feature film directorial debut with "Nights in Rodanthe,” following a distinguished theatrical career as a writer, director and producer that includes two Tony Awards.

Previously, Wolfe directed "Lackawanna Blues” for HBO, which earned him the Directors Guild Award for Best Directorial Achievement, a National Board of Review Award, an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best First Feature, a Christopher Award and the Humanitas Prize. "Lackawanna Blues” won four NAACP Image Awards, earned seven Emmy Award nominations and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Wolfe gained a national reputation as a gifted new voice in the American Theatre for his play "The Colored Museum.” This was followed by "Spunk,” his adaptation of three short stories by Zora Neale Hurston; and "Jelly's Last Jam,” his first Broadway musical, which garnered eleven Tony Award nominations, including Best Book and Best Director for Wolfe.

Shortly thereafter, Tony Kushner asked Wolfe to direct the Broadway production of his much-acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-winning drama "Angels in America,” for which Wolfe won the Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards.

Meanwhile, Wolfe took on a new and daunting task as producer of the Joseph Papp Public Theatre/New York Shakespeare Festival. It was here that he created such landmark productions as "Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk,” for which he received his second Tony Award; "Elaine Stritch At Liberty”; and "The Tempest.” His other Broadway credits include Suzan-Lori Parks' Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Topdog/Underdog,” "The Wild Party,” "Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992,” "On the Town” and "Caroline or Change,” which he recently directed at the National Theatre in London, where it received the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Musical.

Wolfe's additional awards and distinctions include four Obies, the Dramatist Guild's Hull-Warner Award, the Society of Stage Directors and Choreographers' Calloway Award, a Bessie Award, the George Oppenheimer/Newsday Award, the Lambda Liberty Award and the Actors Equity Paul Robeson Award. He was honored as a Library Lion by the New York Public Library and named A Living Landmark by the New York Landmarks Conservancy.
