Divine Rivalry

In 2012, David Selby appeared in the West Coast premiere of Divine Rivalry at the Old Globe in San Diego. Michael Wilson, with whom David has worked at the Alley Theatre and Hartford Stage in productions of Long Day's Journey into Night and St. Nicholas, directed.

Divine Rivalry, written by Michael Kramer with D. S. Moynihan, transports audiences to 16th-century Florence, where two of the world’s greatest artists, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, face off in a painting competition orchestrated by political mastermind Niccolò Machiavelli (The Prince). Michael Wilson, director of the Globe’s revival of Horton Foote’s Dividing the Estate, remounted his acclaimed production of Kramer’s play, which had its world premiere at Hartford Stage.

Miles Anderson, well known to Old Globe audiences for many roles, including the title role in The Madness of George III for which he won the San Diego Theatre Critics Circle Craig Noel Award, was Leonardo da Vinci. Sean Lyons made his Old Globe debut as Niccolò Machiavelli. Euan Morton, nominated for a Tony Award for his portrayal of Boy George in Taboo on Broadway, was Michelangelo Buonarroti. David Selby portrayed Florentine statesman Piero Soderini.

Performances began on Saturday, July 7, 2012. The final performance was on Sunday, August 5, 2012.
