Keen Company's Artistic Director Jonathan Silverstein has announced casting for the previously announced first New York revival of Adam Gwon's musical Ordinary Days, directed by Silverstein himself, which will play a limited engagement at Theatre Row's Clurman Theatre from October 2 through to November 17, 2018, with an official opening set for October 17.

The cast of Ordinary Days includes Whitney Bashor, Marc delaCruz, Sarah Lynn Marion & Kyle Sherman.

Ms. Bashor previously appeared on Broadway in The Bridges of Madison County, whilst Mr. delaCruz made his Broadway debut in If/Then. Ms. Marion is a 2013 Jimmy Award Winner, making her New York stage debut and Mr. Sherman previously played the role of Pete in off-Broadway's Pete the Cat.

Synopsis: "Ordinary Days, a refreshingly humorous and inspiring musical about making simple connections in a chaotic city, tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect in unexpected ways as they search for success, happiness, love, and taxis."

The creative team features musical direction by John Bell and new orchestrations by Bruce Coughlin, alongside scenic design by Steven Kemp, costume design by Jennifer Paar, lighting design by Anshuman Bhatia, and sound design by Alex Hawthorn.

Keen Company's 2018-2019 season will also include the New York premiere of Chisa Hutchinson's play Surely Goodness and Mercy, directed by Jessi D. Hill, which will play a limited engagement (also at Theatre Row's Clurman) from February 27 through to April 14, 2019, with an official opening night scheduled for March 13.
