Two veteran Seattle stage actors have been selected as Lunt-Fontanne Fellows for 2015. Timothy McCuen Piggee, currently in the cast of “Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris,” and a faculty member of Cornish College of the Arts, and local thespian Gretchen Krich will be among the thespians from around the U.S. who will study with master teacher Phylicia Rashad in a week-long residency at Ten Chimneys, in Wisconsin. The landmark estate is the former home of the late stage stars Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne.CQ
