Re: John Astin Directs the play "No Exit" at Johns Hopkins University

Hollywood actor and director John Astin, perhaps best known for his role as Gomez Addams in The Addams Family television series, is directing the Jean-Paul Sartre play, "No Exit" this weekend at the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus in Baltimore, 3400 N. Charles Street. It will be held in the Swirnow Theater at the Mattin Center.

Astin, the Baltimore-born actor and 1952 graduate of Johns Hopkins, leads a production of the play about three people doomed to spend eternity together in a room where they drive one another crazy. The play is part of an overall renaissance of the theater program at Hopkins, where Astin studied drama and theater in the early 1950s. Astin has been teaching acting and directing at Hopkins for the past three years. Several of his students will be performing in, "No Exit."

The play runs Friday, Feb. 28, and Saturday, March 1, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, March 2, at 3 p.m. Admission is $5 for the general public and $3 for students. For more information, please call 410-516-6287.
