Signature Theatre has now announced casting for the upcoming production of Pulitzer Prize-winner Stephen Adly Guirgis' Our Lady of 121st Street, directed by Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad, which is scheduled to begin previews at the Pershing Square Signature Center's Irene Diamond Stage on May 1, 2018, ahead of an official opening on May 20 and a limited engagement through to June 10, 2018.

The cast of Our Lady of 121st Street includes Joey Auzenne, Obie Award-winner Quincy Tyler Bernstine, Erick Betancourt, Maki Borden, Jimonn Cole, John Doman, Dierdre Friel, Hill Harper, Kevin Isola, Stephanie Kurtzuba, Paola Lázaro, and John Procaccino.

Synopsis: "After the death of the beloved Sister Rose, a group of her former students return to their Harlem neighborhood to pay respects. But at the Funeral Home, there's a problem—her dead body has been stolen. An irreverently brash and insightful dark comedy, Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Our Lady of 121st Street paints a vivid comic portrait of what happens when old friends meet old wounds and how old habits die hard."

The creative team behind Our Lady of 121st Street has also been announced and features scenic design by Walt Spangler, costume design by Alexis Forte, lighting design by Keith Parham, and sound design by Robert Kaplowitz.

Our Lady of 121st Street Tickets are available now for performances from May 1 through to June 10, 2018.
