Dylan Thomas NY stage show 'pinnacle,' Sheen Michael says

Actor Michael Sheen is to direct and star in a production of Under Milk Wood at the American theatre where Dylan Thomas first performed his famous work.

Sheen will take the role of First Voice when the show is staged at the 92Y in New York on 26 October, the eve of the centenary of Thomas's birth.

It will also be broadcast live on BBC Radio Wales.

The all-Welsh cast will include Kate Burton, daughter of Richard Burton who also performed the role of First Voice.

Dylan Thomas narrated the first read-through of Under Milk Wood at the 92Y in 1953, shortly before he died in the city.
