Primary Stages announce casting for Perfect Arrangement

Primary Stages have announced casting for their upcoming New York premiere production of Perfect Arrangement, written by by Topher Payne and directed by Michael Barakiva.

The cast includes Julia Coffey (Norma Baxter), Robert Eli (Bob Martindale), Mikaela Feely-Lehmann (Millie Martindale), Christopher J. Hanke (Jim Baxter), Kelly McAndrew (Barbara Grant), Kevin O'Rourke (Theodore Sunderson), and Jennifer Van Dyck (Kitty Sunderson).

Perfect Arrangement begins previews at The Duke on 42nd Street on 29 September 2015, with an official opening on 15 October and a limited run through to 6 November 2015.

The creative team has also been announced and features scenic design by Neil Patel, costume design by Jennifer Caprio, lighting design by Traci Klainer Polimeni, sound design by Ryan Rumery, and hair & wig design by J. Jared Janas.

Synopsis:"In Perfect Arrangement, it's the 1950s and the age of the Red Scare. The Martindales and the Baxters have manufactured a life as peppy as a sitcom, right down to the corny jokes and occasional product placement... but when a co-worker at the US State Department discovers their deepest secret, the worlds of 'I Love Lucy' and Edward R. Murrow clash in hilarious, ironic, and genuinely moving ways. Long before Stonewall, nothing is as it seems in this New York Premiere."

Perfect Arrangement is a co-production between Primary Stages and MARS Theatricals.
