Vineyard Theatre announces casting for Gloria

The off-Broadway non-profit Vineyard Theatre has announced dates, casting and creative team for its upcoming production of Gloria, written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and directed by Evan Cabnet.

Previews will begin on 28 May 2015, before an official opening on 15 June, with a limited run through to 3 July 2015 at the Vineyard Theatre.

The cast of Gloria includes Jeanine Serralles, Jennifer Kim, Catherine Combs, Kyle Beltran, Mike Crane and Ryan Spahn.

Synopsis: "Gloria follows an ambitious group of editorial assistants at a famed Manhattan magazine, each of whom hopes for a starry life of letters and that career making book deal before they turn thirty. But when an ordinary humdrum workday becomes anything but, the stakes for who will get to tell their own story become higher than ever."

The creative team for the production features scenic design by Takeshi Kata, costumes by Ilona Somogyi, lighting by Matt Frey and sound design by Matt Tierney.

The Vineyard Theatre's current production of superhero-themed musical Brooklynite concludes its run on 29 March 2015.
