NEW YORK — Paul Newman, who first rose to stardom in a 1953 New York production of "Picnic," will return to the stage this summer playing the Stage Manager during a limited run of Thornton Wilder's "Our Town" at the Westport Country Playhouse, which, coincidently, is run by Joanne Woodward, Newman's wife.

Performances begin June 5 and run through June 22. James Naughton, who is on the playhouse's advisory council, will direct.
